Giant Fish Crashing Through Building

The Beaver House: In downtown Grand Marais. Need I say more. It's the greatest!

[Elaine Ramstad, 11/10/2000]

The Beaver House opened in 1964 as a shoe repair shop before its owners switched to fishing lures. The crashed walleye arrived in the early 1990s, courtesy of local artist Jim Korf.
