Time to Enjoy the Lake

Hello Forest County Residents!

Summer is finally here and everyone is heading to the lake! Enjoying Crandon’s beaches in the summer is not a modern phenomenon. The people of Forest County have been spending time on the lake as long as there have been people residing in the area. Below is a view of Lake Metonga looking south as it appeared between 1910-1912. The presence of tire tracks on Lakeview Street establishes the date because there were not any cars earlier than 1910. The large building on the bluff to the right was the Crandon Gun Club.
