The name Frederick S. Robbins might ring a bell for those in the Rhinelander area.
As part of our continued series A Northwoods Moment in History, local historian Gary Entz has the story of his life.
Frederick S. Robbins is a fairly well-known name in Rhinelander history. He came to the city in 1886, built a sawmill in 1887, and ran the Robbins Lumber Company for many years. Robbins lived an active and adventurous life, but what is less well-known is how tough and vigorous he really was.
