I love it when the Poppies bloom in town ...and they are blooming right now. This batch is on the side of one our historic homes.
This is the front of the Hough/Onley House. built in 1877 by prominent Lake City resident John S. Hough. Mr. Hough built several other buildings in town that are still standing; our bank building and the block of buildings that houses our arts center. When this house was very new, Mr. Hough had a famous house guest. Susan B. Anthony who came to town speaking on women's rights in 1877.
We have a large historical district in our little town. You can pick up a map of the area at the Welcome Center. Forty something of our homes and structures have historical plaques...telling the history of each place. So grab your straw hat and stroll at your leisure.
