The picturesque Fredrickson bait shop, made of an old boxcar, sits on the shores of Star Lake just as it has for 75+ years. Friends of Star Lake has almost completed the restoration of the bait shop. All we have to do now is move the furniture back in and put up the sign. The Bait shop will serve as a self service museum where people can come and go and see it as if Edith and Hazel were still sitting in their easy chairs, reminiscing about the good old days in Star Lake.
The bait shop will not be relocated to the Old Milltown Depot- but run by Friends of Star Lake volunteers and registered with appropriate federal and state historical registers. It will be open to the public free of charge and open May – October of each year.
