Horseshoe Lake Dam, 1900

Members of the Hecker family -- who operated a dairy farm nearby on Fairmount Boulevard -- pose in front of the dam at Horseshoe Lake in 1900. The original construction of this dam on Doan Brook in the 1850s provided power for the Shakers' woolen mill and also created Horseshoe Lake.
