Inscription.
The 19th century mill pond and dam, sawmill, icehouse and farmhouse had outlived its productive days when Omley, Hansen and Hall of an American Scandinavian group discovered it in 1926. With the Depression, the summer community soon became year-round. Today, the park has a diverse population of about 200 families and the icehouse serves as their clubhouse.
