Mountain Lake

Mountain Lake Park, Maryland: Mountain Lake Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


A lake was constructed and in 1894 the Lake was greatly enlarged so as to cover about 35 acres of land, and at a cost of $11,300.29. An ice house with a capacity of 2500 tons was erected on the east side of the Lake, a boat house on the west side; a keeper's house was also erected. In 1896 a fine livery of boats was placed on the Lake and became one of the attractions of the Park. The boats have returned to our Treasury a profit of $262.92.

...(From Felix Robinson, Tableland Trails, 1956).

The lake is at last more than a name: the boats are new and clean.

...(from Mountain Chautauqua, 1897).

It was at least ten years ago this summer that I got the bright idea of renting the Dooley cottage in Empty Lake Park, Md... The smell of dampness still brings back nostalgia for Empty Lake.

...(From Isabel Wilson, undated. "Empty Lake" because of the low water level in Mountain Lake)
