flying duck logo Mallard Island – BuildingsWannigan


Once a traveling kitchen boat for the loggers in the Rainy Lake region, this "Wannigan" is an extraordinary example of boats with that name. You'll find the Wannigan to be a center of activity on the island as people gather to cook and share meals. Its table seats 12 easily at its new (2008) tabletop. People love to pick out dishes from the 1930s collection of china and set a simple or fancy table. Here is where Sunday's orientation happens and, in the upstairs section, there is a fine library of old articles, photos, and books written by authors who've stayed on the island over the past decades. Don't forget to sign the guest book!
