Lakeside Museum

Lakeside Museum Grand Opening!

Museum Committee

Lakeside's first museum
Our first museum was located inside the Lindo Lake County Park
Like at the turn of the twentieth century, hundreds of enthusiastic people flocked to Lakeside to experience Lindo Lake, the Lakeside Inn and the weekend races. On the weekend of June 4 – 6, 2004, they came from all-over the county in cars, buses, motor homes, and even bicycles. One guest boasted of being from St. George, Utah! They came because now Lakeside’s past can be enjoyed in pictures and memorabilia at the Lakeside Museum. Lakeside Museum The opening of your museum was indeed a huge success. To our delight, people were waiting at the front door even before the museum was open, and some visitors arrived at the last moment before closing, anxious to see and learn about Lakeside’s past. And many of the visitors lingered for more than an hour and everyone was thrilled to see your museum.
