Save the historic MOWSAR Lodge! sign now

After over seventy years of continuous operation, the Mysterious Order of the Western School for Anthropoglacial Research Lodge is being foreclosed on and is scheduled to fall to the wrecking ball next month to make way for new luxury icehouses. Only if you act now can we save this historic structure and piece of Minnesota winter heritage from destruction.

The MOWSAR Lodge was designed and built in 1933, making it the second-oldest continuously occupied ice shanty in Minnesota. The handsome stained glass window in the rear was installed in 1937 as a gift from the people of Bergen, Norway, and is made entirely from white Medicine Lake sand and molten Iron Range ore. It is valued at over $900,000.

MOWSAR was established in Minneapolis in January 1885 from the merger of several prominent fraternal and scientific organizations with a charge to vouchsafe, encourage and preserve the study of the unique winter practices and customs of the people of the great sovereign state of Minnesota. We have operated this lodge at this location as a public service since 1933. If MOWSAR is unable to make arrangements with the bank by Valentine's Day to come back into possession of the deed to the building, 2008 will be the last year it stands on Medicine Lake to serve that singular purpose for the people of this state.

Please don't let this historic site be destroyed forever.
