The history of our lakes

Emerald & Sylvan

Our lakes have a unique history.

 

The Lakes have supplied ice to homes in Newaygo when there was no electricity, lumber for many houses throughout the midwest, and marl for the concrete in many buildings.  We have many pictures of the Lakes in different decades and a very interesting history.  The Oak Leaf Club has assembled a "History of the Lakes" book available for purchase.  Contact the Club for more details.
