Cecil's Restaurant

Cecil Carender's first cafe on the corner of Maine Avenue and Sycamore Street. This building once housed Otto Marcks' Grocery Store, later became Cecil’s Café, then Anthony Held’s Hardware and Supply Company. In 1963, Leo Ward moved into this building and it has been Leo’s Lakeside Pharmacy ever since.

Cecil's Drive-in c.1930s

Facing east at where the Inn once stood. Behind the Real Estate sign can be seen a small part of the Inn’s wall that was built in 1908.

The new location of Cecil's Café, now a Drive-in, on Woodside Avenue near Maine Avenue. This building, the old spring house, is the only structure remaining from the Lakeside Inn after its demolition in 1920 . . . it is still with us today in part.
