Home of the Deepest Inland Lake in Wisconsin
When Green Lake began as a resort community nearly 150 years ago, the pace of life was determined by transportation. Visitors arrived by horse-drawn carriage, after long trips that were sometimes hot, dusty and uncomfortable. While here, they enjoyed the waters of Green Lake by rowboat or steam launch, or maybe by a canoe. Meals at the resort hotels were prepared using produce from gardens on the property, flour from the local mill, chickens from a nearby farm. Entertainment was a hayride, a lakeside picnic, a band on the lawn, a swim in the lake. Through the veil of time, it seems so peaceful and idyllic, the best place on earth.
