Ferncroft on Ballard Lake
Ferncroft was one of the first resorts on Ballard Lake. It was operated by Gene Shepard of Rhinelander. The resort has since closed and been demolished. Shepard is the source of the stories of the Hodag, and perhaps of Paul Bunyon. (See the two sub-topics and their bibliographic references.) Talk of Shepard's Hodag being exhibited in Star Lake, meant exhibited at Ferncroft.
