Josiah B. Scovell

One half mile south of this point lie three islands, known as numbers 1, 2, & 3, in the St. Louis River, which were settled by Josiah Boardman Scovell, original U.S. patentee in 1881, who retained ownership for the balance of his life.

Islands donated as part of Jay Cooke State Park by Edith Scovell on Nov. 18, 1944 in memory of her father.
