Deal saves historic Beaver Bay fish house, for now

BEAVER BAY, Minn. (AP) — A wooden fish house built on northeastern Minnesota’s Beaver Bay more than a century ago will remain standing for at least five more years.

The building’s owner and the owner of the property on which it stands have reached a lease agreement.

Last month, the nonprofit Beaver Bay Club began eviction proceedings against Bruce and Bonnie Anderson, the Duluth couple who own the building.

The two sides were scheduled to appear in court Thursday. But Bonnie Anderson tells the Duluth News Tribune (http://bit.ly/1d4pBRn) that she and her husband have reached an agreement with the Beaver Bay Club.

The club’s attorney confirms that the matter has been settled and the lawsuit is being dismissed.

The Andersons’ fish house was built in 1898 by a Norwegian immigrant.
