Thunder Lake Narrow Gage
This presentation is based on the book "Thunder Lake Narrow Gage". Our presenter, Mary Andrews, is the granddaughter of the author, Harvey Huston. For 48 years, from 1893-1941, the Narrow Gauge hauled logs, piling, pulpwood, potatoes and lumberjacks among the lakes and forests of the Wisconsin Northwoods between Rhinelander and the Three Lakes & Eagle Chain of Lakes area. Mary's presentation will be followed by a short presentation by Kerry Bloedorn regarding the logging museum located in Rhinelander. Kerry is the director of the Pioneer Park Historical Complex in Rhinelander which includes one of the best logging museums in the area.

Mary Andrews
As the eldest grandchild of Harvey Huston, whose two books on logging railroads in Northern Wisconsin have added so much to a little known aspect of the development of the area, Mary Andrews grew up fascinated with the history of the Three Lakes area. Raised in Winnetka Illinois, but spending summers in the area, she now lives in Sugar Camp with her two daughters. Mary has used her business skills to help promote her grandfather’s books which have gone through multiple printings and are a staple for those interested in the Thunder Lake Narrow Gauge Railroad and the Roddis Line, as well as people interested in knowing more about the history of logging in Wisconsin. Mary also sells poster sized maps showing these routes.
