"On Chequamegon Bay" Washburn by yooperprof
Washburn Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 8 photos
A Pretty place.
This is the Bayfield County seat. Bayfield has a year-round population of 14,000, though I'm sure it's higher in the summer.
At one time Du Pont had a major munitions factory in Washburn, and 10,000 people lived in the town. The town now has about 2300 residents, but I wouldn't be surprised if the population starts to grow again - this is a beautiful place.
The present Bayfield County was created in 1866. In 1892 the county seat was moved from Bayfield to Washburn. This Courthouse was erected in 1894-95; of locally quarried sandstone at a cost of $31,737.00, by the architectural firm of Orff and Joralemon, Mpls.
