On a visit to Marquette County in the spring of 1933, Fred and Emma Klumb traveled the windy road that was then highway 41 to the Queen City. They fell in love with the area and decided to sell their Wisconsin farm and buy eight wooded acres in an area that was then several miles from downtown.
People said the Klumbs would lose their shirt, starting a supper club during the depression at a time when most people did not have a car. Nevertheless, Fred and Emma along with their two daughters built the cabin while living in a tent.
The Northwoods Supper Club opened in 1934. Before the restaurant closed in 2007, it would undergo numerous renovations and multiple additions and wear out multiple dance floors. It was once the second oldest restaurant in the state. At one time they went through 25 tons of beef and 2 tons of coffee annually. The quality of their food – all made from scratch – and their impressive beer and wine selection was unsurpassed.
