St. Germain WI Real Estate
St. Germain, in the heart of the woods and lakes of Vilas County, has a surprisingly rich history. Soldier Jean Francois St. Germaine had married a Native American and rather than return to New France in Canada, he deserted and settled with his wife’s tribe. In 1747, Antoine St. Germaine, a fur trader, was living in this area, and by the 1800’s, several St. Germaines were recorded by the Northwest Fur Co.. Leon St. Germaine served as a Chippewa interpreter in the War of 1812 and was employed by the American Fur Co. in Lac du Flambeau. Big St. Germain Lake was so named for the French-Native American family. The community took the same name, dropping the final “e.” The statue of Chief St. Germain, which stands in the village, honors the many Native Americans who had this name.
Today, St. Germain offers tranquility, quaint shops and supper clubs, and a wide variety of year-round outdoor activities such as fishing, boating, swimming, water skiing, extensive ATV trails, biking tails, hiking trails, bird watching, golfing, camping, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and more. Festivals and events are held in all four seasons. While observing the wildlife around St. Germain, keep your eyes open for rare white deer!
