Northwoods StoryCorps: Holiday Acres Resort

Sep 21, 2018

Summer tourism in the Northwoods is ending and some of our seasonal residents are leaving the Northwoods for their permanent homes elsewhere.

At Holiday Acres Resort in Rhinelander, a dedicated group of family and friends have been coming up the last week of July every year for almost 50 years. Holiday Acres recently asked some of them to interview each other about what that tradition and the Northwoods as a whole means to them.

We broadcasted two interviews from their recordings as part of our We Live Up Here series.

Here are the unedited interviews from everyone else who participated in their project (listen in stereo):
