About the Author

Images within this book will awaken the reader to stories and tales from the past. Chief Hopocan’s village on Nesmith Lake, fires that destroyed ancient structures, the Sandy Beach Amusement Park, Cormany’s Landing, Kepler’s Hotel, and Young’s Restaurant were attractions that drew visitors to the area. Classic and antique boat shows, boat races, sailing clubs, and Fourth of July fireworks are historically intertwined in the history of Portage Lakes. Carolyn Vogenitz lives in Portage Lakes and is the author of the book Portage Lakes Then & Now.
