Purchased in 1944 by Art Hansen, Hansen Sports on Bay Lake has been a family-owned business for 70 years in the Brainerd Lakes Area of Minnesota. Art, Edith, and Curt ran the business during the summer months. In 1971, we purchased the local Evinrude franchise. In 1972, we started running year-round. The fourth generation of the Hansen family is now working in the business.
