Learn the fascinating background of various sites around the lake, including two train stops, steam and gasoline-powered ferry docks, a 21-room hotel, private clubs, the infamous Monahan’s and more. The history walk includes twenty posters with historical photos plus additional signs with reminders of environmental issues that affect the lake and what we can do to protect it. A $5.00 donation to the LBA is requested.

LBA shirts, hats, bags and stickers plus Richard Gelpke’s 275-page Lake Boon History book will be available for purchase at the start–a great opportunity for early holiday shopping.

Put on your comfortable walking shoes, wear bright clothing for safety and come on down!
