TMLA History Committee Solicits Family, Neighborhood Histories

by Tom Cox, for the History Committee

200 Years are models for a story that you might write.  Here are some of the questions you might want to cover in your account:

  1. When did your family first come to TML?
  2. How did you happen to come to TML?
  3. Did you camp, rent, homestead, or purchase?
  4. What is the history of your lot, cabin or homestead?
  5. What impact did WWI, the Great Depression and/or WWII have on your Ten Mile experience?
  6. What significant relationships has your family had with other lake families?
  7. What has your relationship been to the Ten Mile Lake Association? (Officers, committees, etc.)
  8. What particularly strong memories do you or other family members have about activities and events on or about the Lake?
  9. Do you have pictures or clippings the committee can copy and possibly publish?

You may send your family or neighborhood history by mail to the History Committee, C/O Sue Eikenberry, 5811 White Spruce Lane NW, Hackensack, MN 56452 or by e-mail to Sue at AND/OR C/O Tom Cox, 5688 Fernhurst Drive NW, Hackensack, MN 56452-2328 or by e-mail to Tom Cox at

Your help will be invaluable to the Committee as it seeks to maintain a chronicle that will be of special interest to all Ten Milers.
