Although long since torn down, this huge pavilion, located on the small bay on the west shore of the lake, was the site of Minnesota's first Labor Day celebration. Trains from St. Paul, Minneapolis and Stillwater brought thousands of unionists here on the first Monday in September, 1885. Located at 4531 Lincoln Ave., directly across Highway 61, it was then a hotel run by the Ramaley's for the summer tourist trade.
