Return to Lake Eden essay

Aerial view ca. 1942 showing the Dining Hall and the Round House to the left of the Dining Hall. The Science Building and Photo Lab (the long narrow building) is on the lower right and Brown's Cottage is to the right of the lab. North Lodge and South Lodge are on the right side of the photograph and Stone Cottage (partially obscured by trees) is in front of the lodges. Top center beyond the tennis courts is the Service Building. The Gate House at the entrance is mostly obscured by trees.
