Martin Pattison was the man behind the park, i.e., Pattison State Park in northern Wisconsin. Pattison lived along the Black River for three years, where he and his men logged the Wisconsin forest. Pattison parlayed his share of the lumber company into a land purchase in the Vermilion Range, Minnesota. During the late 1800s, Pattison became one of the largest land holders, rich with deposits of iron ore.
