Inscription.  At 100 feet in length, the Queen of the Lake was the largest of five steam boats and boat launches operated by the Norton Family on Big Green Lake. Built near this site in the mid-1890’s, and powered by coal and wood, the Queen was famous for its “Round the Lake” excursions until the late 1920’s.

A generous gift to the community from Robyn and George Mockus, on behalf of Norton’s Dining Room, will remind future generations of the history of Big Green Lake.
