Win-Mar/Pea Patch Centennial

April 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join the Manitowish Waters Historical Society Zoom presentation and celebrate 100 years of amazing service and fun at the Win-Mar or Pea Patch. Explore the 1888 building of the Rest Lake Dam as well as the Mississippi River Logging Company camp, which established the first MW commercial operation in 1889.  Learn how Winne Johnson Young, daughter of Walcott Johnson the Rest Lake dam tender, ultimately took over as dam tender and established the Win-Mar with Winne’s life long friend Marie Zimmerman. The Win-Mar 0perated until 1961 when Charlie and Inez Pea took over the property and ran it. Later in the 1970s Decker family took over operations, and in the 1980s and 90s Judi Schmidt-Arnold and her family owned the Pea Patch. In the late 1990’s Barry and Lisa (LaPorte) Hopkins took over the Pea Patch and continued this amazing cultural legacy.
