1891: Spring Lake
This is a picture of Spring Lake in Trenton Illustrated by Ellwood Parsons Robbins published in 1891. Click on the picture for greater clarity. Notice the mansion steps immediately to the left of the open-sided building. The sign next to the buggy states, "No Fishing Allowed on Sunday". The image on the lake, added by Mr. Robbins, states "Silver Spring", one of the many springs that feed the lake.
