This is an early picture of Camp Wah Wah Taysee.
A collection of photographs found tucked inside the house. 
We have spent summers on this lake for nearly thirty years,
ever mindful of the old camp and the history of the house.

The pictures tell a wonderful story.
Throughout the 1920's it was a summer camp for girls.
They were instructed to pack two wool bathing suits and caps. 
Here are the girls posing for a picture on the shore of the lake.

Campers spent six weeks enjoying country life.
Activities included swimming, boating, arts and crafts, 
handwork, singing, dancing, horseback riding, and hay rides.
Every evening they had a camp fire.
The spirit of this place certainly lives on.

How wonderful to have such a history behind your home. What great good fortune for those pictures to have been left behind for your family to treasure.
