History[edit]

White Birch Village was originally known as White Birch Lodge, and only consisted of the main lodge that still stands on the Lake. It was purchased by Carol and Dick Malmgren in 1981, who added most of the modern lodgings and improvements to the resort. In 1992 they purchased the former Aqualand Zoo property to expand the resort. They passed the resort onto their daughter, Sue, and her husband John Altshwager in 2006.[1][2]
