I will always remember fondly how exciting it was to be facing the end of the century and the beginning of the new, Millennium with the Wolfe family at the lake. I used to drive in from White Haven to spend lazy summer days on the lake or sunning on the boathouse deck. I sure did love Nancy's "New Year's Baby". The only way to top that lake news would have been with Samuel Wolfe the "V" !!! Talk abt a deer in the headlights Harvey's Lake!

I was so happy to see that you recognized my mother-in-law, Nadine Teberio, as the Master Chef of the WaHoo Inn. We still miss her cooking, but her grandson is following in her footsteps with Teberio's Pizza. We still miss those crazy New Year's Eve parties, and the big bands she used to bring to the Valley along with all of the family that worked there as a team. Tony Teberio died when he was only 46 - Nadine continued to run the WaHoo Inn on her own, but it became too much for her.

Growing up in the 50's & 60's, my Uncle Bernie used to take me and my sister and brother to Sandy Beach every Tuesday in the summer. Remember swimming out to the dock was a big deal. Leo's Pizza... When we got older, we all loved dances there and at Hanson's. Great memories...great pics!

Hello everyone. It's great to see so many wonderful comments about Harveys. we al lhave our special memories of a beautiful place. Lets see, Grotto pizza, fishing off the bridge behind grotto pizza with my dad, Puterbaughs Market for groceries, my grandmother playing bingo, the arcade near grotto pizza, of course hanson's amusement park. Old Sandy bottom beach and having hotdogs under the pavillion there. I even remember the drive in movie theater. My dad won a bicycle there. A shinny red schwinn. The cottage may grandparents owned is still there. Actually it looks about the same except for the outhouse not being there. I loved sitting on the front porch on the glider and just hanging out. Especially during a rain storm. You could hear the thunder echoing through the mountains. What a great time in a great place. Everyone have a good day

My grandfather was JC Gosart. His store was at Sunset at the current location of Bill's Cafe. He was also the postmaster there. After he died, my grandmother, Mary Edith Pendleton Gosart became the postmistress. The store had been in my grandmother's family for at least 2 geneerations before Grandpa Jake married into the family. Also, the American Legion Post is named after my Uncle "Tinker" Arthur Rush Gosart. I remember Uncle Tinker & Aunt Ginger managed the Bingo at Sunset for years! My Uncle Bobbie Uzdella used to paint signs & even the rides at Hanson's.

I spent all my formative summers at the lake (Sunset) from 1947 until the 70's. I was one of Tommy O'Brien's "boys" and learned to SCUBA from him in the very early 60's. The lake is also where I learned to sail, waterski (badly) and love the water. My Mom sold her Rhode's Terrace cottage, built by my father in 1930, to family friends in the 90's. My sister and her family continue to represent us on the lake from their lakefront chalet near Hanson's. My only notoriety at the lake was that I was the tall brother of the redheads.

I grew up each summer at the Lake. My uncle was John Hanson who owned and operated the amusement park for many years. In summer our family lived above the arcade. Members of our family (mother, uncles, etc.) worked at some of the 'stands' in the park,

Love the info on James Campbell, my grandfather's "McLaughlin&qu ot; cousin. I researched his time at Multnomah Athletic Club. Did you know Don Scholander's dad was the master of ceremonies at his going away party. He coached Don and some other future Olympians during his short time there.

My uncle Al Law used to take me and my sisters Ruthie and Diane Geldens and my mother Ruth to the park for a picnic and a swim. As part of a divorce settlement my father had to send us to live with our mother for a mother every summer for about 3 years. Me and my cousin "little al" Law used explore the shore collecting soda bottles for pocket money. One year we all spent some weeks in a rented cottage. This time was around 1965-67 I don't recall a big roller coaster, but I do remember there was an abandoned drive in screen. I love reading about the history of the park because I remember enjoying hot summer days swimming and playing at the lake.

Some of my most fondest memories were spent at the north side of the lake in the 50's and early 60's. My uncle had a boat dock in that area. He used to take us out on his Chris Craft speed boat for fast fun rides. Afterwards we would go to ride the merry-go-round at the amusement park. Great Times!

I have in my possession a book titled "A History of the United States Secret Service" authored by General L. C. Baker circa 1867. It has a hand written name on the front pages of Benjamin Harvey. The dates do not match up with the original Benjamin Harvey. Was there a second Benjamin Harvey and where can I find some history of him ?

I love Harvey's Lake and I am fascinated with the history of the lake! I don't live right on the like but I do live close, close enough to ride my bike there every day after school. I have ridden my bike around the whole lake 26 times, and have ridden about 1,200 miles on my bike at the lake, I usually ride to Grotto Pizza and usually am dressed in costume, I am famous at Harvey's Lake from dressing up, I usally am dressed as an American Indian, Santa, a hobo, a goat, a super hero, a tourist, the grim reaper or a ghost! I could tell you all about the history of the lake for hours, I have been to Hanson's and its a shame how bad it is, Im a star on youtube (my name on youtube is coinboy1998) and hopefully when I become famous someday and...

Yes I will still call it Hanson's. Im so upset over the fact that they took down the last of the speed hound, part of the dance hall and the last of the ferris wheel recently. Today I was just at the site of the Hotel Oneonta and the Shawanese Post Office and its terrible that the Hotel Oneonta had to burn down on February 2, 1919, I would have loved to have been there. I really like the pictures and videos that are on this web site! Also I travel to all of the historical sites at the lake on my bike. I have been bike riding at the lake for almost half of my life and I really love Harvey's Lake! I hope to get in contact with the people that run this web site so I can find out more info.
