About Lake Lemon
Lake Lemon was a saving grace for Bloomington, Indiana when the city was in a great time of need. Bloomington was dwindling due to its lack of water, which prompted the mayor to work hard in acquiring a “homemade lake” that brought more money, jobs, and of course, water. The lake was named after that mayor, Tom Lemon, who was known to drive around in a bright yellow squad car. Since its creation, the lake has been about fun and safety all year round. An article from 1957 explains in greater detail the history of Lake Lemon and its impact on the city of Bloomington.
