Large crowd drawn to Capone’s Hideout presentation | Subscriber

There’s nothing like a local connection to a notorious Prohibition-era murderous gangster/psychopath to get the crowds out.

The Sherman & Ruth Weiss Community Library parking lot was packed on Wednesday, April 27, and inside were more than 100 people seated and several more standing to hear a presentation by Guy Houston on the history of The Hideout, Al Capone’s retreat to Northwoods. the City of Couderay. The Sawyer County Historical Society sponsored the presentation.
