As part of series on great places to build log homes, here are some photos of the beautiful Washington Island in Wisconsin.

|A ride on the Cherry Train (pulled behind the red pickup of longtime island resident Ed Livingston) is the best way to get acquainted with the history of Washington Island.|
|Located in an old schoolhouse, the island’s Art and Nature Center features a gallery of local artwork, as well as exhibits on nearby flora and fauna.|
|The polished white pebbles of Schoolhouse Beach give it an unforgettable vista. (But don’t even think about putting one in your pocket to take home as a souvenir—it’s illegal!)
|Climb to the highest point on the island (the Lookout Tower at Mountain Park), and you’ll be rewarded with views that stretch on for miles.|
|The Scandinavian architecture of the Stavkirke (a church built entirely by community volunteers) is an homage to the island’s status as the first Icelandic settlement founded in North America.|
|A weathered road sign outside Nelsen’s Hall cheekily makes reference to the tavern’s most famous drink, Angostura Bitter’s, a 90-proof stomach tonic that was served under a pharmacy license during prohibition.|
