As part of an effort to identify historic resorts and lodges in Sawyer County, the Wisconsin Historical Society on May 22 sent a group of historians and architects to explore the buildings and grounds of The Hideout, the onetime lodge of the infamous prohibition gangster Al Capone.

The tour was arranged for Daina Penkiunas, deputy state historic preservation officer for the Historical Society, who was accompanied by Matthew Wiedenhoeft, an architect for MartinRiley Architects-Engineers of Oshkosh, and Rachel Peterson, an architectural historian with HessRoise historical consultants of Minneapolis. The tour was conducted by Susan Aasen, a member of the Lac Courte Oreilles tribe (LCO) and LCO Historical Society.
