The History Page has Just Added 4 New Memories of Long Lake

The History page (tab above) has links to stories, documents, and other items from Long Lake Association Members. (short cut to history page)
The most recent entries will be at the top of the list under the title "History: Story Links". 

Each story is shared on our history page with hopes of inspiring others to share their stories of Long Lake - whether your family came in the 1920s or just last year.  We all have a unique story as to how, why, and when we came to this lake.

Holiday time is a perfect time to talk with your grandparents, parents, etc.  Listen to their stories.  For those of you who are comfortable with technology, try the app from Story Corps.  This group is collection personal stories from all over the nation for storage in the Smithsonian.  Record your conversations for them, but make a copy for us.  Email the audio file or written story to  We would love to have old pictures too.

LLAA (Autumn 2015) Newsletter

On September 15, 2015, a specimen of a young eagle that had died was delivered to the Park Rapids DNR Wildlife Office.  It had been found electrocuted near a Long Lake power pole and had a Cisco in its talons.  [Perhaps it hadn’t listened to its parents when told to choose a tall pine tree for a dinner table?]  Read our Fall 2015 Newsletter to learn about an intriguing "likely scenario" and why this picture is a "wake-up call" to help the Cisco.  [Click on the photo for a closer look.]
