If you were making plans to visit Lakeside a century ago, what could you expect?
By 1920 the organization that began as a Methodist Campmeeting and family resort had blossomed into a large scale summer attraction for a wide variety of groups.
This Lakeside "On Lake Erie" program, found in the LHS Archives, offers a forty page overview of the recreational, religious, cultural and educational events scheduled for the 1920 summer. The cover page highlights the various programs held during each week, including the Chautauqua Assembly, the School of Missions, and the Regional Conference on Temperance.
"Nature was in a happy mood when she fashioned Lakeside and men have wisely seized the opportunity to add to this first great endowment."
"When you come to Lakeside bring your 'good time' clothes and enjoy the recreations."
