Is “Lake #5” the Bessemer Rod and Gun Club? When I was young My Dad and Uncle used to be members,and I fished there many times.Also,I remember The pump house lake.We were talking about that during the holidays.Nobody seems to remember how old these two particular Quarries are.Input would be great.
1930’s through the 1950’s, Lake #5 was the one north of the high school divided by a highway. Lake # 3,
on the south side of town, or where the wealthier people lived, was the Bessemer Rod and Gun Club, a private lake requiring a membership fee and dues. This may have changed in subsequent years.
