Captain Laird’s Recreation Lodge

Here are some of the old publications for Laird’s Lodge.  I like that the feeling back then is still true today.  Most of the time the lake is still “Chuck Full Of Hush”.

Here is one of the brochures extolling the lodge as “The Land Chuck Full of Hush”:

I love the old wood print on this which describes Laird’s Lodge “Where Trails Begin”:

Where Trails Begin


This next one describes how to get to Laird’s Lodge.  It first describes how to get their by car or train, but then offers direction for those “wishing to travel by air”, who are urged to announce their date and hour of arrival (by wire) and state whether or not they have trunks 🙂

    Thanks so much for posting. Cap Laird was my great-great uncle, and though I never met him I was close to my grandfather, Laurence “Ike” Laird, who worked at the Lodge and shared fond memories of his time there. Just finished building a big rec room and have christened it “Laird’s Lodge” in remembrance.
