Description: From log cabins to elegant Victorians, cowsheds to mansions, Bayfield's architecture reflects not only the passing centuries but also the lives of the people who made it their home. Built from Wisconsin's great white pine forest and Lake Superior brownstone, Bayfield's buildings tell a fascinating story of pioneers, adventurers, lumberjacks, fishermen, bankers, merchants and frontier lawmakers.
