In the small town of Hermansville just of US-2 in the central Upper Peninsula is a large two-story building with a red circle and the letters IXL in the center. The building was built in 1881 by the Wisconsin Land and Lumber Company and used as their office. They made hardwood flooring and branded the flooring IXL for “I excel” to denote the quality of the flooring. They also stamped the boards with the IXL logo. The company office in Hermansville closed in 1978. It was converted into a museum in 1982, a century after the building was constructed.
