White Lake Yacht Club
By 1897 most of White Lake's bustleing sawmills had given way to small hotels. Promoters advertised the area's cool temperatures as a relief from the summer heat of cities and drew thousands of people to the area, many from Chicago. During the winter if 1902 - 3 the White Lake Yacht Club formed. The club hired Chicago architect Robert Rae, Jr. to design the clubhouse which opened in 1906 with a large ballroom and bays for boats.
