White Lake, Wisconsin, USA

White Lake is a village in Langlade County, Wisconsin, United States.

White Lake is located about four miles west of the scenic Wolf River and the historic old "Military Road" which is now Highway 55. It is in the Town of Wolf River which is located in the eastern part of Langlade County. The name "White" was given to the lake by the Indians who hunted and fished in this area many years ago. It was named because of the white sand and marl in lake bottom. The Langlade County History tells us that in 1876, Isaac Farrow, a pioneer of this era, attempted to drain White Lake and make a hay meadow out of the level bottom. He failed in his venture because he didn't realize the depth of the lake and that it was fed by springs...
