Quinnebog Fishing ClubEdit

This small wooded Island is home to the Quinnebog Club, which owns the island. The Club was built in 1898, still exists and is active. The main clubhouse holds the dining hall and kitchen facilities as well as staff bedrooms on the second floor.

"The Pete Nowak lodge is where club members relax after a hard day of fishing. The lodge features a antique wooden bar, at the west end of the building as well as an antique pool table and personal members' member lockers that line the inside walls of the lodge. If you were to look in the guest registry you would find the names of U.S. Presidents Grover Cleveland and William McKinely who visited Hen Island during the history of the island."

The Club may have bought the island from either a certain "Colonel Blanchard", the first resident of the island, or Rudolph Siefield, an Ohio businessman.
