In 1932, Gordon A. Schlichting, a Minneapolis architect, carved the Mermaid while a student spending the summers on Rainy Lake. Located in Silver Island Narrows, near Copenhagen Island, the Mermaid watches over the comings and goings of the lake.
Statesque and secretive, the Mermaid sits upon a rock in the middle of beautiful Rainy Lake. Constructed out of steel rods, old boat propellers and cement, the Mermaid is truly a work of art.
