Gatekeeper's Cabin Museum

Gatekeeper's Cabin Museum Review

This museum preserves a little-known part of the region's history. Between 1910 and 1968 the gatekeeper who lived on this site was responsible for monitoring the level of the lake, using a hand-turned winch system (still used today) to keep the water at the correct level. Also on this site, the fantastic Marian Steinbach Indian Basket Museum displays 800 baskets from 85 tribes.
