1. The Moose Lake Dam Marker
Inscription.  The original dam, called the Goodrich Dam, was built by Jim Goodrich in 1878. It was used to raise the level of the Moose River to float logs during the spring log drives. Another dam, called the West Fork Dam, was built by John and Billy England in 1883, about 100 yards from the first dam. The current concrete dam, known as the Moose Lake Dam, was constructed by the Chippewa and Flambeau Improvement Company in the winter of 1924-25. The dam was rebuilt and increased from two gates to three gates in 2015.
Erected 2017 by Wisconsin Historical Society. (Marker Number 567.)
