Inscription.  
The first of the “Second Homes” in the Wallenpaupack basin, this estate complex of eight buildings – Connell Park – was built in 1903 by coal baron William Connell. In 1912 Col. W.A. Watres acquired the property as part of the land assemblage needed to build Lake Wallenpaupack. In 1966 his family established the Lacawac Sanctuary, giving the property as a memorial to Col. Watres.

Plaques donated in memory of Matthew Brennan, Board Chairman, 1990-92
