Hodag Park Bathhouse – Rhinelander WI

Description

“The Hodag Park Bath House is a one-story, random rubble, hip-roofed building. It is Rustic, a style that was popular during the late 1930s. The Bath House was built circa 1938 (1939 photo, L. L. Cook Collection, SHSW; Rhinelander City Directories; “Hodag is New Name For Park,” New North, May 11, 1939, p. 1). The park was initially designated “Mary Didier Memorial Park,” but the name was soon changed. The building was funded by the W. P. A. (Kris Gilbertson, “W. P. A. Leaves Lasting Legacy,” Rhinelander Daily News, April 23, 1985).”
