The history of Winona Lake

The area surrounding Eagle Lake, now known as Winona Lake, was originally the home of the Potawatomi Indians. A treaty was signed with the tribe in 1834, and the first white settlers arrived soon after. In 1881, the Beyer brothers, attracted by many natural springs around the lake, purchased the tract of land. There they constructed spring houses which served as cooling systems for their dairy business. In 1887 the Beyers enhanced the natural beauty of their farmland and platted it into a resort known as Spring Fountain Park. Prominent features included Garfield Park and the Eagle Lake Hotel, today’s Winona Hotel. In 1894 Dr. Solomon Dickey, a leader of the Presbyterian Church, dreamed of building a “kind of religious chautauqua.” The succeeding years were a period of tremendous growth for the Assembly. Led by a board of directors including Thomas Kane, H. J. Heinz, John Studebaker and William Jennings Bryan.
