The Boat House at the resort on Straight Lake.
Not the greatest photo with the sunspot. But you get the idea. It has a stone foundation.
We used to keep the lawn mowed close to the lake. I almost went into the lake a few times with the lawn mower making a circle on the bottom of that hill.
The steps on the left are still looking good. Far Guy and I used railroad ties and rebar and leveled the dirt between the ties with a shovel. It took us most of an afternoon. We were younger then.
Most structures cannot be this close to the lake anymore. This boat house was most likely built in the 1920’s.
The downstairs was used for storage of life jackets, tackle, extra anchors, boat cleaning supplies and a tub of night crawlers that we harvested ourselves and sold on the honor system.
The upstairs was a great place to sit and play cards or look at the lake. We had many tables and chairs, a ping pong table, a pop machine, and a couple of pin ball machines and bookshelves with books and games. If we had a gathering..like a confirmation or graduation or wedding shower if it was in late spring, summer or early fall it was a perfect place to host a gathering when you were going to feed a whole bunch of people.
