Big Lake Info and History
In the late 1800s and early 1900s, the Big Lake Area was comprised of three thriving and bustling mill towns, Montborne, Ehrlich, and Big Lake. The town of Big Lake was owned by the Day Lumber Company. The town site was located at the north end of the lake and had a train depot, company store, post office, hotel, boarding house, and many other miscellaneous buildings.
The Day Lumber Company even had it’s own “tin money” that was used to pay workers and to make purchases at the company store.
