Silver Lake history:

Silver Lake Village, Ohio was once called Silver Lake Amusement Park. The land with two lakes, Silver Lake and Crystal Lake was, in 1808, home to the Seneca Indians. It was purchased by Ralph Hugh Lodge in about 1875. Ralph and Julia (Plum) raised 10 children and started the Silver Lake Amusement Park. It could be reached by train from Cleveland, Ohio. It contained a Zoo, baseball field, miniature train, and a Pavilion that could seat 500 people and had a hard maple wood dance floor. There were several boats that cruised the lake and had a band for dancing. There also was the Silver Lake Airport, the first Airport in Summit County. (from the writinghs of William Lodge, 1947)
