Hermit Island (Wisconsin)
Hermit Island is a Wisconsin island in Lake Superior and a part of the Apostle Islands. Along with most of the islands in the group, it is a part of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. It was named after a hermit who lived on the island from the late 1840s to 1861.
Hermit Island was home to a number of quarries for its brownstone from the 1860s to the 1890s.
It is nearly 2 nautical miles (4 km) long, lying 2 nautical miles (4 km) west of the northern tip of Madeline Island.
