Bill Kraft adds family memories to program on Kraftwood Gardens

The Antigo Garden Club had a special meeting Tuesday evening.

The Langlade County Historical Society hosted a look at Kraftwood Gardens, a sprawling complex on the shores of Enterprise Lake in the town of Elcho. It was developed by J.L. Kraft, the man who founded the Illinois-based food giant, and remains under Kraft family ownership today.

Joe Hermolin has researched the history of Kraftwood and created visuals that were used at the Garden Club event. But there was a surprising and delightful twist, William and Charotte Kraft came to the program to share first-hand stories about his family and Kraftwood. The couple now reside in Eau Claire.
