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

Map of the Clubhouses & other points of interest  

This a list of some of the clubs that are known to date. Locations are from different sources and from a map that David Burns had pin pointed the weed patches, fishing holes by the names he had tagged them by what he had called them by and he had also pin pointed the places of some of the locations for the clubs. By the time I found the map in the carport - it was beyond saving I took what I could read off of it and placed it onto the small map that was found in the "An Early History Lake Maxinkuckee "
