Lake Boon is a beautiful 65-acre lake located west of Boston. Beginning in the 1920s, its accessibility from Boston and western suburbs via two railroads made it a popular vacation spot. Attracted by its natural beauty, a lively and decorous summer community grew and returned year after year to enjoy boating, bathing, fishing, and many other activities. Photographers were also attracted to the lake, and many of their images became postcards used by the lake residents and visitors to send to friends and relatives. Through vintage postcards, Lake Boon is a visual journey around the lake as it looked in the early 1900s.
Author Bio: Lewis Halprin has spent many of his 35 years at the lake collecting postcards depicting the lake’s history. Alan Kattelle is a third-generation resident of Lake Boon and the lake’s resident historian. Both are members of the Lake Boon Association and the Hudson Historical Society.
