Preserving Lake History in Action

A new project has begun!. An inspired group of Indian Lake Area Historical Society volunteers started on the clean up and preservation of the historic Native American Indian Mound near Dunn's Pond. This mound was built by the historic Hopewell Indian tribe. Volunteers have been cutting down unwanted trees, removing fence posts, rails, and brush and debris. If you want to join in on the project contact John Coleman. Always looking for extra help.


When you become a member of the Indian Lake Area Historical Society, you are supporting our efforts to preserve, protect, and share our rich heritage. Lifetime membership is now available for $300.

If you have old pictures, newspaper articles, or stories about the history of the lake, we'd love to hear from you. We hope you enjoy looking through the pictures, new and old of Indian Lake.

ILAHS Receives Chamber's Beautification Award

The Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce Beautification Award was given to the Indian Lake Historical Society at the annual meeting on December 12, 2017.. ILAHS Member Charlie Strete accepted the award on their behalf. Strete and many other volunteers refurbished a 1912 post office on an island near Russells Point. The lobby and working section of the post office duplicate what the building was like in the early 1900s. ODNR accepted a request to rename the area Post Office Island.
