The Remembering Evelyn Frechette and John Dillinger annual outdoor event is being held every July at the Little Bohemia Lodge on the shores of Little Star Lake. Little Bohemia Lodge was the site where the Dillinger gang was hold up during the infamous FBI raid on April 20th, 1934. Melvin Purvis and FBI sharpshooters tried to apprehend the gang unsuccessfully on that fateful night. Bullet holes from that epic gun fight remain in full view in the Lodge.

You wonít want to miss this historic event which will include family members of John and Evelyn, as well as renowned authors and historians speaking on the subject. There will be antique cars, book signings and tours of the lodge where you can see the room where Dillinger slept. The Lodge also has a small museum collection available for viewing. An evening buffet will be available by presenting pre-paid wrist bands in the tent area and provided by the Little Bohemia Lodge. Be a part of history's gangster past by attending. Members from the Media will cover the event.

Little Bohemia Lodge is located 24 miles north of Minocqua, WI on HWY 51 on Little Star Lake.
