In 1931, Ingvald Walter Stevens purchased this island from the Virginia & Rainy Lake Logging Company and began building cabins by hand. Within a few years he was hosting guests at his “Pine Cove” and would operate his one-man resort until 1959. He continued to live alone on the island another 20 years, to the ripe age of 94, where Stevens achieved some fame for his isolated lifestyle. As a testament to his resolve and adventurous spirit, Voyageurs National Park has preserved I.W. Steven’s beloved home.
