1875 - Lake View Club
later becoming the Lake View Hotel
Attention was first attracted to the lake as a summer resort by the erection of a clubhouse
by a few residents of Plymouth on the east shore of the lake on grounds leased of L. T.
Vanschoiack. the same now being owned by Mrs. McOuat, of Indianapolis.
This was in 1875. The lease was to run five years. The club house was a story and a half
frame building, with sleeping apartments above, and parlor, dining room and kitchen below.
It became quite a popular place of resort, and many times during the hot summer months as
many as fifty persons were entertained at one time... - History of Marshall County Indiana

1879 - 1880 -- R. Mc Quat
from an article in the Indianapolis Star "Lake Maxinkuckee and its Cottages, 1936 -
was also to have been printed in the Culver Citzen the same year:
The oldest cottage on the lake according to all reports is the Robert L. Mc Quat
cottage which was built in 1875 on ground that was part of the old Van Schoiack
According to Mr. Mc Quat, who is spending his fifty-seventh summer at the lake,
Levi Van Shoiack, who was from Richmond, went to Lake Maxinkuckee on horseback
in 1830 and later settled on the land. Many of the present residences are built
on ground originally owned by him. The old farmhouse is now owned by Stuart Dean,
whose family also pioneered in the territory.
Mr. Mc Quat's father Robert L. Mc Quat, also started his lake career in 1879, and
his shack was also a fishing haven. The building has a loft-like upstairs which was
equipped with sleeping bunks built in for the men. The women slept downstairs.
His uncle George Mc Quat, went to the lake four years earlier his father. He recalls
early days when he took part in the fishing juants as a youngster. Only a few shacks
were on the shore and fishing was the sole attraction.
