  • Notes 
    • Lake Cabin
      Long Lake, Arbutus Drive, Webb Lake, Burnett, Wisconsin, USA
      PIN 038-9125-12-800
      Lot 116, Murmuring Pines, S32, 33 T41N R14W
      The Lake property was bought from James Kellerhals on October 24, 1960 for $625.00. They had a payment plan of $100 down, with $525 at 4% interest. $100 payments were made in January and July until the loan was paid in full.
      After clearing some of the land, a small, 3-bedroom cabin was built. About 10 years later, an addition of a living room and bathroom was built. On July 1, 2011 a storm with up 100 miles an hour straight-line winds damaged the cabin and it was torn down in September of 2011. A new cabin will be constructed by Hank and John and their families. The old, large pine tree by the fire pit, which had fallen on the cabin, was made into boards and will be used in the construction.
