Your Guide to Vacationing on Madeline Island and the Apostle Islands
The Attraction of Madeline Island By Lois Johnson Carlson Madeline Island isn’t just a place. It’s a frame of mind. Although the sites and activities may attract your attention, there’s something much deeper here that will attract your heart. Wondering if you should come across? Yes—hop on the ferryboat!
signs on the island honor its’ original residents and their heritage of humility and connection to nature. If you remain still, you may feel the strength of their presence in the quiet lake breezes.
Madeline Island‘s plethora of pastimes will satisfy a vacationer’s to-do list, like frolicking on soft sandy beaches, dining on delectable local fare or immersing one’s self in Madeline Island’s rich history.
Over the years, hearty souls came to Madeline Island as fishermen, farmers, craftsmen and teachers. Their love for the land grew along with their families. It’s no surprise their descendants carry on today with the same pioneering spirit, and now in turn, care for the community by running small businesses, operating the ferry, tending the ice road and serving in town government with a commitment to the Island that is their legacy.
It’s an intangible spirit—a je ne sais quoi—that if your heart is open to it, will beguile and court you, enticing you to return again and again. Perhaps it’s the invisible heartbeat beneath her shores drawing you in that creates the connection, but whatever the cause, it’s not unusual to be captivated by Madeline Island’s magical energy. It’s been that way for generations. The Chippewa people were the first to understand the magnetism of Mooningwanekaaning (island of the yellowbreasted woodpecker). It is here where the Creator guided them from the East Coast. The island is named for Equaaysayway, the daughter of Chief White Crane, who married fur trader Michel Cadotte and took the French name Madeleine. Today, directional
“Summer people” began their sojourns to Madeline Island in the 1800s. Generations later, many descendants of those first families still hear the call to return, recharge and renew— sailing fresh waters, embracing the abundant (continued on page 9)

Ways to play on the Island Families with younger children will want to explore the Madeline Island Historical Museum up the hill from the Ferry Dock. History unfolds at the museum in displays describing Native American life, the fur trade and arrival of missionaries, 19th century fishing, logging, brownstone mining and local maritime lore. A lively musical slide show introduces the visitor to the “Story that is Madeline Island.” The gift shop offers books, crafts, jewelry, and gifts rooted in the island’s history. Just down the street from the Museum is another must see “museum,” the Madeline Island Historical Preservation Association consists of three buildings from the late 1800’s, experience and explore Island life. When the water beckons, kayaks and canoes are an obvious answer. To rent a canoe, paddle or rowboat at Big Bay Town Park Lagoon, call Bog Lake Outfitters at (715) 747-2685.

Inline skating fans should plan to be on the island on Saturday, June 20th for the 4th Annual Apostle Island Inline Marathon.
Wisconsin’s Great Island Escape
If you’re up for a hike close to town, check out Capser Trail. With trailheads on two of the island’s main arterial roads (Big Bay Road and Middle Road), the Capser Trail is a step into the lush and majestic interior of the island within walking distance of downtown and the ferry. This family friendly gravel trail winds through the woods, starting at about one-third mile from the ferry. Further in, the Nucy Meech trail, an undeveloped but well-worn path, branches off and arcs deeper into the beautiful quiet before rejoining the Capser.

There are several benches for rest along the way. Also, towards Middle Road, there’s an overlook of tall grasses and wetlands. Creative types and families can turn exploring the island into a fun scavenger hunt with the help of a “Spinscape.” The spinning interactive art platform —available for purchase exclusively from Bell Street Gallery—is a fun way to arrange and display all your nature finds. A Spinscape is a unique and memorable souvenir to take home and also is a great gift idea.

Remnants of this era can be found throughout the islands. Snorkeling ship wrecks, climbing lighthouses and exploring the living quarters and tool sheds of the historic Manitou Fish Camp are just a few ways to enjoy the relics offered by the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.
Island magic: A billion years in the making By Karen Nicholas, Owner of Adventure Vacations
There are 22 islands in the archipelago, 21 of which make up the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. Madeline Island is the only island on which there is a small town, La Pointe established in 1834. Today about 250 residents inhabit year-round on the island and during the summer months the population swells to around 2,500 people. Madeline Island bridges the gap between wilderness of the islands and the “creature comforts of modern civilization.”
The Fedora Shipwreck located in shallow water has been submerged for over 100 years. On our boat tours you can view the shipwreck from the boat or snorkel over it to see the steel ribbing of her hull still intact. In 1904, just before the Fedora caught fire and went down, she passed the Raspberry Light house. Today you can climb the stairs of the light tower for an aerial view of the islands where the Fedora lay to rest. The Apostle Islands are also known for their long and sandy pristine beaches. Julian Bay on Stockton Island will make you feel like you’ve found the Caribbean of the Midwest. The sand feels like silk on your feet and squeaks a tune while under foot. The natural splendor of the islands and geological wonders are prominent on Madeline Island as well. At Big Bay State Park, the Point hiking trail leads you to cliffs above sea caves made of ancient sandstone. The State Park offers more than nine miles of trails, several scenic picnic areas and many
The geology of the Apostle Islands dates back more than one billion years. The gorgeous red sandstone caves, pillars, sea stacks and cliffs were once flowing sand settling in this part of the Superior basin. After the last glaciers receded, Lake Superior battered the rocks into the formations visible today. The most impressive sandstone formations and sea caves are found on Sand Island, Meyers Beach (mainland), Devils, Stockton, Oak and Madeline Island. These islands amply demonstrate working geology still in Beach progress.

A brief history of Madeline Island and the “Made on Madeline” tradition
of Lake Superior or clear the timber from the woods of Northern Wisconsin built their homes from materials available locally, like logs. Later, with the establishment of mills and quarries, home builders could use lumber or brownstone to construct a home or a place of business. With local materials, the settlement at La Pointe grew from a seasonal wigwam encampment with a few scattered log buildings, to a bustling town of homes, churches, schools and businesses.

Madeline Island Historical Preservation Association:
Preserving the Past Enriches Our Lives By Mary McHugh
Experience life on Madeline Island during the late 1800 and early 1900s through the restored buildings maintained by the Madeline Island Historical Preservation Association (MIHPA). MIHPA is a non-profit organization supported by volunteers and donations and dedicated to the preservation of Island family history and community life. The maintenance of the historical buildings is under purview of MIHPA. At the MIHPA historical site you can step back in time and see Island life through the eyes of the early settlers. Visit a one-room schoolhouse, view a pioneer family’s life on Lake Superior and imagine daily living in the parlor of an early parson’s house.
Madeline Island is one of the oldest settlements west of Sault Saint Marie on Lake Superior. The early settlers of the Apostle Islands were industrious and brave souls. One of the first priorities of the settlement was the education of the children that resided on the Islands. Missionaries established the first schools that served the community on several sites. One of those schools was the Lake View School.
Lake View School was built in 1905 and originally located at the corner of what is now Schoolhouse Road and Big Bay Road. It has been preserved and furnished with items that were used during the time period. Lake View School as well as the first Protestant Parsonage, and the Angus House (or cheese house) are fully furnished for the time period, and found at the MIHPA Heritage Site. Tours are available to anyone who would like to visit at no cost, but donations are graciously accepted. This is a great opportunity to visualize life on the Island during earlier times through these buildings and the surrounding grounds including the Veteran’s Honor Garden. As you depart from the Madeline Island Ferry, it is just a short walk to the MIHPA Heritage Site. Visitors are always welcome to tour the buildings and accompanying grounds from Memorial Day through the end of September. MIHPA also sells the Madeline Island Historical Cookbook that contains recipes and photos provided from the residents of the island over the years. There is also our published book called, On the Rock, which depicts a pictorial and written history of the families that lived on Madeline Island through the generations. Both these books can be purchased through local merchants and at the Lake View School. In addition to the books, there are clothing, stationary and gift items that one can purchase as well. We hope you can join us for several events during the year. On Memorial Day, at our Veteran’s Honor Garden, we sponsor a Remembrance Walk to honor the veterans that served in the military. Biannually, in midJuly, we sponsor island house tours of various homes that are unique to Madeline Island. Check out our website for details. Other fun events

The Hunters Feast, which is a dinner and raffle event sponsored by MIHPA and the local hunting camps, is a wonderful night of fun during the November hunting season. We hope we can count on you to join our membership and stop by our Heritage Site to see for yourself the wonderful artifacts of our past.
