The Lake View Club was the first club house built on the lake by men from Plymouth; it is was the Mc Quat Cottage on the east side, address being 2008 East Shore Dr. Being built in 1873 and has been razed and replaced with a new modern and larger cottage; located on the east bank of Lake Maxinkuckee on the Louden T. Van Shoiack farm.
    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. The officers of the club were Joseph Westervelt, president; William W. Hill, treasurer, and C. H. Reeve, secretary. -History of Marshall County Indiana (1908) Daniel Mc Donald pg. 99

This is map is given as being 1898 BUT I believe because of the section of the Vanschoik property it is a MUCH LATER date at least AFTER 1908 as the farm land is labeled J. T. Vanshoiak; and the lake front property has been sub-divided off and sold By this a J. T. 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
