Home Sweet Pickle Barrel: 20th century cartoonist’s home still draws a crowd
If you're heading to the Upper Peninsula for a vacation this summer, you might choose to stay in a hotel. Maybe you'll camp out in a tent or camper.
Or maybe, if you're like 20th century cartoonist William Donahey, you'll stay in a pickle barrel.
Near the shore of Lake Superior in Grand Marais sits a little barrel-shaped cottage. This very unique little place was once a summer retreat for the cartoonist and author of children's books.
Cathy Egerer? from the Grand Marais Historical Society joined us today to talk a bit about the pickle barrel cottage and the man for whom it was built.
