THE OLD LAKESIDE BALLROOM

THE LAKESIDE BALLROOM

Before I start telling the story of this, I have to say that I had a problem here for a few days. I went to make a Post about this place, but when I did it told me that I didn’t have enough space to put a Image here. WHAT! I tried to do this 2 more times, but no luck. So, with this in mind had to write to WordPress and tell them what was wrong. They got back to me within hours, and said that what I had to do was delete all the Images I had posted over the passing years. This should clean up space so I can Post more. I did what I was told to do by going into my Media and deleting the many, many Images from all the way back to 2014! I had no idea that I had to do this. Since I have a free plan that only gives me 3GB of storage, it finally got filled up. So, I had to spend over a hour getting rid of what I did not want anymore! Now, I can Post more on my WP Site, Thank goodness! I really don’t want to pay for this stuff, so I’ll leave well enough alone.

The Lakeside Ballroom Dance Hall was built in 1924 and has 28,000 sq. ft. of building. The dance hall is a huge polished wooden floor of 10,000 sq. ft. This place was extremely popular back in it’s day. Many bands, wedding receptions, etc. were held here until the 1970’s when it started to loose popularity. The owners were having trouble keeping up with maintenance, costs of food, and paying for good help until it had to close for good.

This once popular dance hall, I was never at. I had no idea it existed until my Wife told me about it and how great it used to be. She was here once when the Jordon Brothers played. The parking lot was so full there was hardly any space to park your car!

Now, after doing some research on it, I find that after sitting vacant for years, someone has bought the property and want’s to return it to it’s glory of years ago. A new kitchen, some building maintenance, paint, wax & polish the dance floor, and bring back the popular bands of today is in the plans. When all this is complete, I’m not sure of. Guess the new Owners are not either.

Thank you for stopping by.

Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.

    1. That’s true, Linda. I had made so many Posts over the years that they were just taking up space & no one was reading the old ones anyway. Now, I have room for more recent stuff.

  1. With things being the way they are, it is not the most opportune time to reopen a venue that will depend upon large gatherings of people to survive. On the other hand, maybe their timing is perfect, build when the demand isn’t there to be ready to open when the pandemic is history.
