The Wisconsin State Building

The Wisconsin State Building is the only Pan-Am structure to remain in existance besides the New York State building. After the Pan-Am ended in November of 1901, legend has it that the Wisconsin building was dragged across the fozen ice of Lake Erie to its final resting place at Point Abino, Ontario. There it was remodeled into a summer home.

In all probability, it was dismantled and portaged by ferry across the lake to the spot where it stands now. It's still colored in the same salmon hue, and its ornamental veranda was converted into a screened in porch.
