Description

Front view of Huntington Lake lodge with guests visible. Based on the flags draped over the entrance it appears to be the 4th of July. The lodge opened on July 4, 1915 so this photo could be of the opening day. The lodge was a combination style of Swiss chalet and California rustic accented with a stone chimney. The building was erected 500 feet from the shore of Huntington Lake. The Huntington Lake area, three miles north of Big Creek, developed as a recreation center after the hydroelectric dams went in and the lake formed in the early years of the 20th century. The pine-fringed lake was named after Henry E. Huntington, president of the Pacific Light and Power Company who financed the earliest work at Big Creek.
