An age old saying states that at the end of every tragedy there will come about something good. The Lauren Rogers Museum of Art was built 1923, in loving memory of Laurel Eastman Rogers whose life was brought to an untimely end at the young age of 23. The museum was established in the hope that it would benefit society and the community as a whole, an aim that it strives to achieve even today. The museum building is a work of art in itself. The stately exterior gives way to elegant rooms that are tastefully adorned with hand-wrought ironwork and graceful wood paneling. The museum boasts a stellar collection of American and European artwork, rare Native American baskets, and treasures from all around the world, alongside an impressive art history library. Apart from these exhibitions, the museum also organizes a variety of educational programs, classes and outreach efforts.
This lake is 150 acres and offers lots of outdoor fun and natural beauty.
