Some History:  

The lakeside community of Cedar Lake has been a water-activities area and retreat people since the beginning of the last century.   At one time, 47 hotels lined the shores of the lake.  Even today, many water lovers flock to Cedar Lake for relaxation and recreation.  

Lake of the Red Cedars Museum which can be visited during the summer months, was first built as a boarding house for ice workers.  It went through the ownerships of Armour (of the meats and hotdog company), John Shedd (of the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago) , Lassen (who moved the structure to its present location across the frozen lake), a religious assembly (which transformed the grounds to a recreational facility), and now the Cedar Lake Historical Association.

Dr. Scholl, the famous foot doctor, began his practice in Cedar Lake, Indiana.
