Inscription.  The lakefront was the hub of early Eustis. Businesses, Eustis Park, the railroad station, bathing beaches, marinas and public docks brought people to the waterfront. Boating activities of every sort from pleasure cruises to regattas were popular. Washington’s Birthday celebration, still held annually in Eustis, began in 1902 as a boating festival on Lake Eustis.
