In 1896 Walker W. Winslow's father bought the Robert Dagget cottage. Walker became one of the
most noted of the summer people and his wife provides these reminiscences of typical East Shore life:
"Walker spent his youth sailing with the other young fry around the lake. He loved the lake so much that
he wanted to spend his honeymoon there in 1913...His mother did not think it a proper place for a bride.
There was no running water, oil lamps were used, the beds had shuck mattresses, and our clothes were
hung on nails on the wall.
"Truckers came over the gravel road, now 117, to our doors to sell provender. Most of the cottagers had
a cook and a manservant, and ate their evening meal on the porches in candle-light.
"The people who came to the lake at that time all lived elegantly at home and they carried on the usual
manner of life at Maxinkuckee. They had an infant yacht club, bridge parties, and dinner parties. The tone
was set then for a classic lake with substantial people.
"In 1931, Walker wanted to recapture the sailing on the lake and at a dinner, at the Culver Inn, he invited
the East Shore residents to help him. Then was founded the Maxinkuckee Yacht Club. The boats being
sailed then were in Class C and Class E.
"Walker loved the lake so much that he wanted it to have everything."

1936 - 1936 Cottage History
appeared in Indianapolis Star
Another home which has a historical background is that of Walker Winslow , for his father lived
there before him. The big house of today is the outgrowth of a small weather-boarded cabin of
forty years ago. According to Mr. Walker, the present dinning room and part of the north bedroom
adjoining it formed the ground floor of the original structure.
The latest addition to the Winslow home is a wing marked by its interesting "New England arches"
which are shown in on of the pictures. The basement has a new recreation room and boathouse which
is a delight to the mechanical minded for it has automatic doors, and very "slick" contrivances
for launching boats down the hill and for nringing them in again snugly.
