Mecikalski Stovewood Building
“Stovewood” is made from logs cut into sections, set in lime mortar, and stacked perpendicular to the length of the wall. It is an unusual construction method rarely seen outside of this area of the Upper Midwest. This is one of the largest stovewood buildings known to exist. It is a rare commercial building using this uniquely American method of architectural folk art.
