Historic cabin tour on July 21
The Cook County News-Herald reports that the Schroeder Area Historical Society will offer a cabin tour on Saturday, July 21. The tour will include "five different cabins, many by famed Minnesota architect Edwin Lundie." For $150 ($130 is a tax-deductible donation to the society), visitors will get to see several Lundie cabins, including the Clifford Cabins (Norcroft) and the Olson cabin. I talked to a volunteer from the society. She told me that the annual tour attracts many "Lundie diehards" who attend every year.

Dale Mulfinger, author of the The Cabin: Inspiration for the Great American Getaway, may (or may not, depending on his schedule) be leading the tour.

Advance reservations are strongly encouraged. The tour leaves the morning of July 21 from the Cross River Heritage Center in Schroeder, Minnesota, located about 80 miles northeast of Duluth. For more information, call (218) 663-7706.

PS: The New York Times discovered the North Shore last week. The article, published in "The Escapes" section, notes that home and cabin prices on Lake Superior have skyrocketed in recent years, but are still less expensive than California and Maine.
