2010 v 2009 Gordon Wisconsin market activity - 02/23/11 04:31 PM
This first bi-annual Gordon WI market activity update shows how our local market is doing compared to Douglas County WI overall.

To put a little more perspective on these numbers, of the 17 homes that sold in Gordon last year 15 sold for less than $200,000 making Gordon an affordable community to buy a home.

Is the Minong Flowage in NW Wisconsin right for you? - 02/21/11 08:07 AM
The Minong Flowage is a 1,564-acre impoundment of the Totagatic River created by a dam completed in 1937. Most of its bottom is sand; its maximum and mean depths are 21’ and 9’.
