The Wilderness Lodge is not only a local landmark it is also well known to have a fair amount of historical significance mixed with local legend ... the Wilderness Lodge was built in 1963 and was intended to be a get away resort for Hollywood types. Plans were to build an entire resort community on the thousands of wilderness acres surrounding it but they never got beyond the lodge. Reportedly many stars including the “Rat Pack”, Jackie Gleason, Jack Paar, John Wayne, Joe Namath and Elvis Presley visited the Lodge in the early sixties. The Lodge has 10 bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom & shower, a large commercial kitchen and dining area are able to handle up to 25. The other end of the building is the big "main lodge room" complete with a large fieldstone fireplace, foosball table and pool table.
