VISITING OUR PAST
Reflections from Yesteryear
Check out our Cabin Property History "work in progress"!
By, Earl Goeltz*, 1984
"Our family has been spending summers at Diamond Lake since 1911. We stopped many times at the old Grand View Store - Wallin Bros. & Habilt; from there we would rent a horse from Jack Sayles and take a buggy ride to Diamond Lake or to Porcupine Lake area and walk from there.
Sometimes we would pump an old hand car up the railroad right-of-way along Twenty Mile Creek to Wisco and from there would walk over to Coffee Lake. We knew most of the good people working at the roundhouse and the Wisco area. Many Grand View people used to stop at our Goeltz Hotel in Ashland, when in town."
