This week we have been focusing our attention on Indian Lake in Ohio. Yes, a small lake kinda in the middle of Ohio, and well, the country. Mind you this is not a huge body of water, but man oh man, did the residents ever make the most of it. A perfect weekend getaway for folks up in that area, and with the universe of power boating all taking place in Michigan, it was one of the first places people could be introduced to the sport. Indian Lake could be named as one of the first generation playgrounds of the power boat industry. While Algonac can claim “Where it all began” Indian Lake can claim, “Where it all became popular.” And like Algonac, Indian Lake should be on your road map through the history of our community. Sadly though, much of it all has disappeared, but not in our hearts.
And here is some footage of Russell’s Point back in the day. mmmmm, the music kinda makes me want to pull out some dollar bills. HEY?
