The community, because of its lake, is a popular tourist destination, referring to itself as, "A Town For All Seasons."
The town was settled by French speakers who immigrated to the area from Quebec and the United States.

The town was incorporated in 1913, at approximately the same time that two rail lines began service in the area.
