Wascott, Wisconsin

Wascott is located just south of Gordon, Wisconsin, and lies about halfway in between Solon Springs and Minong. Wascott is a large town—what might be called a township in other states—that includes a number of highly sought-after lakes. There’s 832-acre Whitefish Lake, plus several smaller lakes like Leader Lake, Bond Lake, Crystal Lake, and Person Lake. Off the water, you’ll find affordable homes in the country, plus some great hunting and recreational land.

Although Wascott doesn’t have a downtown business district, it does have several taverns and restaurants that offer great informal dining options. Be sure to check out their Friday fish fries and other specials.

The town of Wascott came into being around the year 1910. It was named after railroad company president, W. A. Scott. Between 1906 and 1908 the Soo Line Railroad came through Wascott, connecting Chicago and Lake Superior. The demand for wood brought the big lumber companies to the area. The last log drive went down the St. Croix in 1912.
