Lassen’s: 100 Years Later
“I love being able to see so much of Cedar Lake’s History! Some I remember and the rest is great to see… Without spending some time in the museum you really can’t understand much of what it took to build the lake into the town!”
“The Museum was way better than I even thought it would be! I’ve lived in Cedar Lake for many years but never came before. I loved the steamboat, and so did my kids… The way that the whole museum is set up and divided into rooms is just genius and beautiful.“
“From the perspective of a new member to the town and lake, it was a fantastic experience! The history of the lake and the surrounding communities (unfiltered) made it an easy decision to want to be part of Cedar Lake Indiana!“
