A fundraiser for the Cable/Namakagon Historical Museum will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, at Rivers Eatery in Cable.
The evening will include a presentation titled “Cable Then & Now” featuring photos highlighting businesses and scenes as they were in the early 1900s and as they are now. Mick and Beth Endersbe of Rivers Eatery have agreed to donate proceeds from the evening.
There will be photos from this year’s second annual Vintage Cycle Tour, and unique artifacts will be on display. Nathan Rondeau, a one-man band who sings, plays the drum, guitar, tambourine and harmonica, will perform original songs.
“My music sounds Appalachian Gothic, vintage and haunting,” Rondeau said.
The Cable/Namakagon Historical Museum opened in 2005 and is housed in what was originally a potato warehouse built in 1905. Throughout the years, the building became connected to the lumberyard across the road that is now the Cable Lumber Company. The Bob and Corinne Rasmussen family, owners of Cable Lumber & Homes, donated the building for the museum.
The museum currently has a variety of exhibits with photos and artifacts depicting the history of Cable. The museum sponsors an annual Ice Cream Social the last Sunday in July and a Vintage Cycle Tour at the end of August.
The museum is open from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.
