Open House

Sunday July 7, 2019 11:00am-04:00pm
Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center

The Gunflint Trail Historical Society likes to celebrate the opening of Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center that took place on July 4, 2010 every year.

Sunday, July 7 the Gunflint Trail Historical Society will celebrate two new structures that have been added to the Chik-Wauk property.

It took two years, 20+ volunteer members, countless numbers of hours, to create a beautiful timber framed structure -  Watercraft Exhibit Building.
In this building there will be various watercraft, motors, and artifacts that will be on display for visitors to get a glimpse of how the earlier residents of the Gunflint Trail traveled the waterways.

The second structure is an Interpretive Cabin Exhibit Building. The Interpretive Cabin Exhibit is built on the site of one of the old Chik-Wauk Lodge cabins. This exhibit will be furnished as an "American Plan" style cabin. Visitors to Chik-Wauk campus will be able to get a glimpse of how early resorts furnished the cabins with no kitchen or bathroom facilities available to the vacationers.

Join us for the celebration on July 7 from 11 am - 4 pm to include cake and beverages.

Free admission all day long.

David Battistel presents Leeblain the Ghost Town of Gunflint

Sunday July 21, 2019 02:00pm-03:30pm
Chik-Wauk Nature Center

David Battistel presents the story of Leeblain the Ghost Town of Gunflint

The story of this town, located on Gunflint Lake along the Ontario-Minnesota border, dates back more than 125 years. Leeblain was expected to become a booming town in the wilderness due to the business generated by the Port Arthur, Duluth and Western Railway and the Paulson Mine.

Its failure and the mystery that surrounds it are an interesting chapter in the history of the Boundary Waters.



All presentations are family friendly and free to the public.

The presentation will be held inside Chik-Wauk Nature Center.

Donations are appreciated.
