The Indian Lake Area Historical Society announced that the “History Walk” markers surrounding the restored Sandy Beach Bridge at the Russells Point harbor are installed and available for viewing.

These 11 historical markers recall the rich history of the area and include visuals and verbiage. They are titled “Native Americans,” “Miami–Erie Canal/Lewistown Reservoir,” “The 1913 Flood,” “The Villages,” “Interurban Transportation,” “Islands and Beaches,” “Our Lady of Fatima Statue,” “Sandy Beach Bridge,” “Sandy Beach Park and the Big Band Era,” “Boats of Indian Lake” and “When the Music Died.” Six of the markers have received sponsorships and plaques of recognition to those sponsors will be installed soon. Anyone interested in one of the remaining sponsorship opportunities is invited to contact the Indian Lake Area Historical Society.

The public is invited to enjoy walking the bridge, enjoying the view and learning more about the history of the area. You will become a part of “Bridging The Past Into The Future”.
