In 1887 Theodore Buselmeier purchased block 40 of Pine City and built a beautiful Victorian house over looking Cross Lake.

The Buselmeier family operated a brewery on the property for many years.

In 1937 Dr. E.G. Nethercott purchased the property and opened the Lakeside Memorial Hospital.

In July, 1958, Dr. Erich & Hope Blaufuss purchased the hospital and converted it into a nursing home.

In December 1968 Max and Betsy Blaufuss moved to Pine City and took over the onsite management of Lakeside Nursing Home.

In 1984 the name was changed to Lakeside Medical Center to better reflect the company's mission of providing comprehensive health care services to the people of southern Pine County and northern Chisago County.

The present health care system includes a hospital and nursing home. The basic philosophy of the facility is to provide high quality services and refer all specialty services to the metro area.
