Bill had been working at the Lake View Inn guiding Americans who had come up to fish. One morning, he took one of the guests out and the man caught a huge muskie. The gentleman immediately pulled out his gun and fired six time. Completely missed the fish but put six large holes in the boat, which immediately started to sink. Bill got them back to shore just in time.

If you have any stories or pictures about The Lake View Inn, we'd love to hear them.

I remember the Lake View Inn.... the soda fountain was on the left as you face the front. It had the shiny chrome surround leather top (red) round fixed seats along the counter which ran parallel to the right inside wall. Great sundays and milk shakes with the milk coming from the Rutherford farm. I would often ride there with Tim & Mike S to the Parlor and meet Paddy there. I seem to recall there were some peculiar circumstances when it burn down...
If you can add details to the "circumstances" please add a comment or drop the History Project an e-mail.
