JUST A BIT OF HISTORY OF CEDAR LAKE INDIANA:
Cedar Lake was settled by pioneers in the mid-19th century and by 1870, the Cedar Lake Post Office was established, giving the area its name. After the Monon Railroad came to the lake's western shore in 1882, many new residents flocked to the area along with tourists who saw the lake as a resort destination. From the late 19th century to the early 20th century, Cedar Lake was a popular place for Chicagoan's looking for a retreat from the city. The lake had over 50 hotels at the time and several pavilions and ballrooms that brought many well-known bands to entertain the visitors.
A key element in Cedar Lake's coming of age can be traced to Dean White. The Merrillville entrepreneur grew up in south Lake County and spent plenty of time at Cedar Lake.
With investments across the United States and reaching as far away as China, he remembered the days of old at Cedar Lake, deciding he would invest there to help the community.
His first investment came with construction of bright colored condominiums along the lake. It provided a positive image and set the tone for future development.
