  1. 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.

  2. (EDITOR’S NOTE) Bill, Yes, I’ve been told that the lake/quarry at that location is known as Quarry #5 or Lake #5. Jeff

  3. Jeff, During my residence in Bessemer, the

    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. Best regards, Al
