The Pump House that still stands here at the Antietam Lake was built in the late 1800’s. The Lake was once used to supply the City of Reading with water. Since then the Lake now is no longer used. The Pump House stood in disrepair for a number of years until the City decided to give it some repair that was needed badly. The Red Brick was replaced, at places. The Bridge Railing was painted & repaired. The Stone foundation was patched up giving the ole’ Pump House a new look.

The Pump House walk-way is not for everyone to walk across. It’s just for City workers to keep the structure in repair. Normally, the entrance gate is always locked. There are no boats of any kind allowed on here. No ice fishing, either. Have to fish from the shore.

This area is highly used for fishing. There are some nice sized fish in here. It is also stocked with trout in the Spring. It has always been used as a great Photography spot during all of Natures seasons. I was just one of them.

Thanks for stopping by.

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. 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.
