Carol and her family have lived on Brown's Lake since 1976. After reading a legal abstract of their home, built in 1898, she began to research the Lake's history. Sifting through newspaper articles starting in the 1870's, she uncovered a collection of colorful characters who reflected the eras spanning the Indian removal to the heyday of the resorts.
Carol earned a degree in History from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. The Burlington Historical Society and memories of Lake People have been prized contributors.
