Big Lake Investigation Canoe Trip
August 24, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm$35
Big Lake is a scenic lake that has an interesting murder mystery in its history. The 1920s brought people from diverse walks of life. There were several summer estates, and some small cabins for summer rentals. Those who lived year round on the lake were caretakers for the wealthy estates, hunting and fishing guides, trappers, and some were moonshiners. One winter night, guide and moonshiner, Mr. Powers, was killed. Was it murder? Was it self-defense? Tour by canoe the important sites of this story. Pack binoculars, water, snacks, bug repellent, sunscreen and a lunch. Canoes/PFDs provided. Register by August 22nd.
