Barnum, Elizabeth daughter of the well-remembered Hon. Mark H. BARNUM, a sketch of whose life appears elsewhere in this volume, has been for some years past manager of the Pines Resort established by Mr. BARNUM during his lifetime. This is one of most attractive resort properties of the lake region. There are four log cabins, which lend a real air of rusticity, and a private home in which meals are served tot he guests. There are accommodations for 20 people, and an air of homelike hospitality pervades the entire establishment and makes a vacation spent here a thing to be always cherished as one of the pleasantest memories of a lifetime. The excellent fishing facilities afforded by the neighboring waters are made available through a fleet of eight row boats operated in conjunction with the resort, and guides, bait, etc. are supplied by the management. The resort is situated eight and a quarter miles west of Minocqua on State Highway No. 70 amid the most beautiful surroundings imaginable, and is attractive in every feature.
