Lake Maxinkuckee Its Intrigue History & Genealogy Culver, Marshall, Indiana

The first structure on this property was built between 1850 and 1885.

The club, one of many around the lake, were usually fishing and hunting clubs. When the Indianapolis Club was built, a long pier also was constructed to accomadate the steamboats that ran around the lake beginning at the Vandalia Station Pier. These boats required longer piers due to their draft.

Vanshoiak had: 45.70 +59.98 +80.00 = 185.68 in 1911 the Vanschoiak farm of 207 was to be sold a 21.32 is unaccounted for for is the Vanschoiak subdivisions/additions to the lake
