    Remember the Ham Lake Fire - 10 years after

    The exhibit commemorates the 10th anniversary of the Ham Lake Fire which burned 75,851 acres in Minnesota (36,443) and Ontario, Canada (39,408). One hundred, thirty-three (133) total structures were lost in the first few days of the Ham Lake Fire on the Minnesota side. Sixty-one (61) were residences, 17 commercial, and 55 were outbuilding and other structures. The estimated value of lost buildings from Cook County Assessor’s office was $3.7 million.

    We are very happy to work with the following organizations on this project; Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway Committee, Gunflint Trail Volunteer Fire Department, U.S. Forest Service, WTIP radio, and Good Measure Media. We will have additional financial assistance from the Gunflint Trail Association/Visit Cook County, and the Lloyd K. Johnson Foundation. Of course we could not put any of this together without the entire community helping us.
