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!”

Richard via Facebook

“Nice antics, exibitions and two lovely and very pleasant 2 ladies telling the stories about the place.

Theresa via Facebook

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!
