Inspiration.Pleasantly surprised to stumble across our little broken down golf cart on your feed._________________________This is the first time we’ve ever seen our whole history shared on a post-(sans the reality our 1/8th star rating)Camp Wandawega | Elkhorn, Wisconsin | c. 1920sThe historic Camp is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Wisconsin Register of Historic Places. Camp buildings date to the 1920s when the resort was operated as a brothel and speakeasyInitially built as the Wandawega Hotel in 1925 by Chicagoans seeking to capitalize on Prohibition, the location was outfitted for the distribution of liquor, prostitution and gambling with multiple exits, trapdoors and hidden hatches to conceal stockpiles. After a Federal raid in 1931, it was temporarily shuttered by a Prohibition PadlockEven with the end of Prohibition, the demand for illegal fare remained and the location was a popular hangout for criminals on the run, local law enforcement, and Chicagoans hankering for some debauchery. In 1942, Anna Beckford Peck – manager and famed madam of the time – was sentenced and sent away to Taycheedah, the womens prison near Fon du LacBy 1951, the location was renamed Wandawega Lake Resort by its new owners, the Andrzejewski family from Chicago until in 1961, the Catholic Church purchased the property. Latvian priests who fled war-torn Europe intended to turn Vandavega into their retirement homeDecades later, with the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the Vatican instructs the Marian Fathers to sell the retreat and return to Latvia. In 2004, David Hernandez and Tereasa Surratt purchased the property and have been restoring it as Camp Wandawega ever since. Hernandez attended the camp as a child, as he is half-Latvian and his family were regulars there from the 1960s to the 1980s. The camp is on 25 acres and includes a 3-story hotel, lodge, cottages, and historic memorabilia
