Around Findley Lake by Randy Boerst

Book Description

Around Findley Lake recounts the story of a mill village that in the late 1800s began to develop into a prime destination-a social gathering place for not only local residents but also members of wealthy and socially prominent families from Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Buffalo. As time went on, Findley Lake offered plays and musicals in the opera house, steamboat rides around the lake, roller-skating at the rink every night, and two islands for picnics or for viewing the logs being floated down the lake to the mill. Today, with its thriving year-round resort, the area has emerged as a tourist mecca. Showcased in Around Findley Lake are not only the distinct communities that developed around the lake but also the exceptional natural beauty of the lake itself, its importance to the early settlers, its recreational attributes, and most importantly its overall significance to the growth of the area. Each chapter's brief introduction offers historical highlights, followed by pages of fascinating facts and intriguing images of the Lakeside Assembly, steamboats, the Big Island, early cottages, and development of the resort Peek'n Peak.
