Strelow, Julius one of the earliest settlers on Little Twin Lake in Vilas County, was born at Wausau, Wis., Nov. 7, 1876. He received his education in the schools of Wausau and remained there until about 1894, when he came to Vilas County. Here he worked in the woods and sawmills for several years, and in 1903 he purchased 21 acres of land on the north shore of Little Twin Lake in the town of Conover, erecting a small log shack on this property and taking up residence there. In 1913 he erected a three room cottage in which he has since lived, and in 1921 he erected another cottage for rent to tourists during the summer season. He intends to erect more cottages for this purpose in the near future, and his place holds out fine possibilities as a summer resort, being beautifully located and having particularly attractive lake frontage. He worked as a guide on the surrounding lakes until a few years ago, being in point of service one of the oldest guides in this locality. In 1909 he erected a small sawmill, with which he has since done custom sawing for his neighbors and for summer resort people over a large radius around him. Mr. STRELOW is one of the solid, dependable citizens of the community, and is highly regarded by all who know him.
