The Lake in the 1950s and 1960s

Bender Faily Cabin

In the 1950s the Bender family owned a cabin on the island. They have gratiously shared these photos with us.
August 1954

“Our cottage was the third one on Island Drive south. As I recall the first one was owned by a dentist named Forrester. Ours was the last cottage onthe west side of the street. It has been replaced by two year-round homes. The log cottage across tge street was owned by the Fowler family. It remains as I remember it.”
