History


Green Valley Resort was founded in the 1940s

|

Wesley and Gladys Koch purchased the resort in 1955, and advertised it as having modern facilities. At the time, there were three resorts on Seventh Crow Wing; Green Valley Resort, Holly-Wood Resort, and Seventh Crow Wing Resort (Later renamed to White Forest Resort)

|

The resort was sold to Jay Horsley in 1971

|

Jim Larson then operated Green Valley Resort from 1974 to April of 1996. During his ownership, three cabins (6, 7, and 8) were purchased from White Forest Resort and transported across Seventh Crow Wing Lake to the current positions you see them in today!

|

Allan and Martha Janssen owned Green Valley next; operating it from April 1996 to August 2011.

|

Mike Wetmore took over in August 2011, and ran the resort until June 2021.

|

Dale and Jennifer Kosmacek purchased the resort in June 2021, and are your current hosts!


Notes left on the kitchen wall of Cabin 2 from 1948!
