History of Land O' Lakes

The economic origins of the town of Land O&Lakes (originally Stateline) go back to the 1870&s when the Rudolf Otto mill, one of the best single-rotary mills in Northern Wisconsin, was built. It was succeeded by theLand O Lakes History Mason-Donaldson Co. mill formed in 1905. The Mason-Donaldson Mill gave its name to the town of Donaldson, located along highway B just west of the town of Land O&Lakes. Donaldson boasted a school house, a community building which was used as a church and meeting hall and several homes. Many of the homes were later moved near the railroad tracks as the town of Stateline became more prosperous. When the Donaldson mill burned in 1908, it was decided not to rebuild, and the town moved east to its present site under the name Stateline, since it rested squarely on the line separating Wisconsin from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
