The past lies just under the surface in Lake County. Interurban trains once carried wealthy Clevelanders to idyllic summer homes and resorts along the shoreline and up to Little Mountain. Stories abound of rumrunning during Prohibition, enslaved people who were carried to freedom through the Underground Railroad and stolen gold bars believed to be buried along a riverbank. Lake County was also once the site of a booming shipbuilding industry and a secret plant that created chemical warfare during World War I. Many residents fondly recall long-gone drive-in theaters and beloved drugstore soda fountains and bakeries of the mid- to late twentieth century. Join author Jennifer Boresz Engelking as she reveals the history behind some of the county’s most intriguing people, places and industries.
