1912 - LAKE

After classes on a cool and cloudy Friday, October the 25th , 1912, close to 100 Westtown alumni, committee members, teachers and students gathered on the water in canoes and on the wharf of the new Lake House to celebrate the official opening of the new Westtown Lake. The three men most responsible for the lake’s creation (visible near the right side of the photo, facing the crowd) made speeches about it, and then Westtown alumnus Joshua L. Baily, donor of the Lake House, welcomed all of them to make good use of this new place for outdoor fun.
