Resorts: White City Resort 1923

June 27, 2013 by Hubbard County Historical Museum Director

July 5, 1923

Fred Fulton and Earl Thompson purchased White City Resort back in April of 1923.  (Formerly called Fish Hook Lake Resort)

The fourth of July celebration concluded with a dance at the White City Pavilion.

I have been searching for an old photograph of the pavilion.  I have heard it was right on/over the water.  If you know of a photo of the White City Pavilion please contact the museum.

I do have a photo of a building near the water? Perhaps this old postcard will jog someone’s memory.
