Lake Marwin then and now

Lake Marwin was, at one time, a beautiful family fun area in East Liverpool.  Located up on the Shady Side of town, everyone went there to swim and picnic.  I don't remember the mini golf, but the diving and socializing I sure do!

I went looking for this a few days ago.  It has long been out of business.  Started in 1958, it went out of business in the late 1980's.  
There is little left today to remind us of what once was.  If you have never been there, you wouldn't know there was ever anything there except for the two little signs we found.  Just standing out there I was flooded with such wonderful memories. I drove away with a sad smile on my face and the workings of this story in my head.
