Stone House 100 Year Celebration

Do you or your family have a history on Bay Lake? Whether your family owns a cabin on the lake or you have been coming to Ruttger’s for years, you are a part of the history of Bay Lake. On Saturday, August 4th, everyone is invited to the first Bay Lake History day at the Stone House. The event will commemorate the centennial year of the landmark know as the Taylor Home Place, or the Stone House, and to highlight our pioneer families and the historic places of interest in the Bay Lake area. Bay Lake History Day will begin at 10:00 am at the Stone House with a short program about the Day’s events. The home will then open to the public until 3:00 pm.

During the event, guided tours of local historical sites will be available from 1:00 to 4:00. Refreshments will also be available. At the end of the event, there will be a meet and greet social for descendants and friends at Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge. Hors d’oeuvres will be served and a cash bar will be available.

If you are a Bay Lake Area Descendant Family or have “roots” in the Bay Lake area, you are invited to display family memorabilia in the home during this time. Photos, family tree information, artifacts and other historical materials are welcome.

If you are interested in participating as an exhibitor or would like more information on the event, contact Kathy Jasperson at (218)678-2256 or
