Back then it wasn't much of a cabin. It was a board floor with wood sides that went up about four feet. The rest of it was a tent top that was put up each summer. Jones allowed the campers to store all their equipment for the winter in the barn on the other side of route 11 outside the park.
Did/Do you know Ray and Anne Todd? Those are my grandparents.

You know I don't remember them, but I am sure that I must have said hello to them as I passed their camp. It's been a long time since I left the park, which was in 1963. There were so many people that I knew back then, but have faded from memory.

When did the Mount stop docking at Big Pier?

Must have been long ago.

Ma and Pa! Ma still sits on the porch and keeps track of me and what I'm up to. Miss Pa's daily swim in the lake to "test the water".

I've taken over my grandfather's spot on his porch listening to the Red Sox games and watching people walk by now.

Thumbs up 2 Rail Road LSP

Good Morning. Found this forum yesterday searching for - wait for lt - history of Lake Shore Park. What a treasure. Both LSP and the forum.

My grandfather Clarence Lyons and grandmother Angie purchased a small trailer, airstream type, with porch when I was a baby, probably 1958ish. He had a huge wooden boat that was parked on rail road during the winters and fought to get into and out of the marina next to the gas station which was pictured. It was an arch. My parents rebuilt in 1980 when the sewer collector was installed and enjoy LSP to this very year.

Dad was on the board of directors for a term, to include chairman. Dave Berry continues to be a LSP figure with his walking stick and big hats. Loved to sail until he couldn’t any longer.

As a child, mom would bring us up to the lake for the summer and homestead until Labor Day. Sylvia, or Sally, brings children, grandchildren, and now greatgrand children to the lake at every opportunity. It’s a safe and nurchering place to be.

Can anyone tell me when LSP Association purchased the park?

Forum member SteveA here seemed to be the expert on LSP. Have not see much activity from him lately.

LSP was bought by the members in 1975.
And last winter was a sad time in the park when SteveA passed away.

I just read that a classmate of mine at WPI, Susan Lindberg Shanahan, passed away recently. It said that she owned a home at LSP. Hadn't seen her since 1987, but she was a very nice person. Very sad.

It is amazing that the Pier is still about the same (some alteration have been made through the years to hold off ice damage) but that beach part is significantly smaller now, there are a couple cottages in that area.
