MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JULY 11 1935 SEVENTEEN CLEAR LAKE WAS VACATION MECCA FOR MUSICIANS Schumann-Heink Once Sang in Old Tabernacle on Camp Grounds. CLEAR LAKE, July 11,--Clear Lake of 1885 was a town of 1,500 already famous in the middle west as a resort. The lake and town was surrounded by beautiful groves of trees, northwest of the town was the Clear Lake camp grounds, center of Methodist camp meetings, Sunday school conventions and northwest musical festivals. Â·Â· The Clear Lake park, generally called the camp grounds, comprised about a 36 acre tract of hilly sandy land, including a half-mile of shore line. The grounds were owned and opperated by the Clear Lake Camp Meeting association composed of Christian ministers and laymen. Trains Stopped There. There were several structures on the park, which were situated on the little hill in view of the lake-- the Milwaukee station bringing persons daily from all over the mid- west to the camp. The large platform adjoined thet association building so that the passengers walked from the train direct to the grounds through this building. Here the offices of the camp were located and assisted in finding quarters for the visitors. The most pretentious building of the grounds-was the pavilion, a large white edifice, octagon in shape, which could seat 3.000 persons. The sides of the building were erected with hinges so that they could be swung out and supported on posts, virtually making the buiid- ing an open air assembly, with a porch around it. A balcony was located around the seven sides of the octagon, above which were sleeping rooms. A large white dome topped the pavilion and showed up from all points of the town. Cost $i,000. The building was made of the best materials and built by expert carpenters of the day. It is said to have cost the enormous sum of 54,000. The Methodist camp meetings and Sunday school associations meetings made Clear Lake a mecca for manly years and in 1881 the first annual music festival was held. The best musical, oratorical and elocutionary talent of the day from the child with a great length selection to Bill Nye, Schuman Heink and Bryan at one time appeared at the pavilion. The late Dr. W. R. Clack was the first corresponding secretary of the music association and later became manager. In 1925 the D. A. R. of Clear Lake purchased for $2,000 a part of the original plot of ground upon which the pavilion stood with the aid ot 51,000 raised from property holders in the vicinity by Mrs. Carrie S. Collins. It now stands as a memorial to the greatness of the past, equipped with picnic benches and tables, a flag, and flag pole, an historic wheel from the old Stevens mill, which is put on special days by Mr. Mr. and Mrs. Paul Fattschull make their permanent home on the grounds.
