Hayward, "distinctively different"

Hayward is in Sawyer County up in the northwest, surrounded by many wonderful lakes up in the north country. It is a favorite spot for vacationers and second-home owners because of its location in the Northwoods, and the abundance of things to do. Great for sports and fishing, lots of trails, and hop skip and jump up to Lake Superior. Logging began here in the 1850s and people flocked here from the Northeast and Europe. The National Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame is located in Hayward.

First visit to Hayward. I was happy to see how they have restored and preserved the town center.


The weather was not so hot, a drizzle, but a fun town to walk through nonetheless.


Looking through this store window, I knew this was my kind of town!


Lots of color on an otherwise rainy day.


An All-American town.


Well, this confirmed it, I had found my home.
