Lot 80 Lakeland

The Lakeland Hotel was the first cottage to occupy this Lot. It was constructed by General Lewis Heath in 1900 and was destroyed by fire in 1914. Pictures of this structure are rare – Here is a newspaper ad for Mr. Heath’s Lakeland.

Lot 80 fire

This photo shows the ashes of the Lakeland following the fire which destroyed it in April of 1914. The two story concrete tower at the right survives to this day, but its original use remains a mystery.  The hotel was being cleaned when the fire broke out, and only a few pieces of furniture were saved and taken to one of the other Heath cottages where they remain to this day. The Heath daughters, who worked as maids at the Lakeland, were  reported to be happy when the Lakeland burned because they wouldn’t have to work there anymore.
