Dinesen

Constructed in the 1860’s, on the tiny Chippewa Indian reservation in Forest County, Wisconsin, this log cabin was acquired by Danish adventurer and expatriate Wilhelm Dinesen in 1873. He named the cabin “Freydenlund” (Grove of Joy). Wilhelm’s daughter (Karen Blixen) who wrote under the pen name Isak Dinesen, penned the book “Out of Africa” in the 1930’s, which ultimately became a major motion picture.
