Join the Lakeside Heritage Society's Sunday Lecture Series.

Today's lecture is The Keystone Guest Cottage & The Maxwell House presented by Elaine Cottrell and Jeanne Maxwell Vaughan.

The Keystone Cottage, at the corner of Second Street and Maple Avenue, is the oldest cottage in continuous use as a guest house in Lakeside, having provided sleeping accommodations for 122 years under the ownership/management of just four owners. Elaine Cottrell, the current owner since 2000, will review the Keystone history. The Maxwell House, at 239 Walnut, was built in 1886, served as the Lakeside Post Office 1910-1921 and has been owned by just three families. In 1954, the house was sold to Paul and Ada Maxwell who began taking guests at $13/week. Their daughter, Jeanne, who is the current owner will share stories of the Maxwell House.
