With Sunday being the beginning of daylight savings time, it’s time to start thinking about starting your indoor seeds, getting your mower tuned up, raking up whatever leaves were left from last fall, and seeing if your swimsuit still fits! We took a drive past the Round Lake Beach lakefront Monday and took a few photos to share here. The lake still has quite a bit of ice on it but with temperatures reaching into the 60’s in the next few days, this should all disappear. It won’t be long before these beaches will be filled with families enjoying why most of us moved here in the first place.

money was finally used, it could no longer be restricted just to local residents.
According to one of our new subscribers, the building shown below at Rt 134 and Cedar Lake Rd. is the OLDEST existing building in Round Lake. According to our reader. it may have originally been a dry cleaners at this location. It was originally built in Hainesville and served as a general store as well as their post office prior to being moved to this location. If you have some fond memories of growing up in the Round Lake Area, be sure to share them with us on our earlier post at “A Trip Down Memory Lane”

And here is one of the newest buildings and business in the area. It is a HUGE 24 Hour Laundry Depot at 1030 N. Cedar Lake Road, next to Scotty’s Hot Dogs. It is so large that it takes up an entire block. From the looks of it, if the laundromat business doesn’t work out, it could always accomodate a service garage with its design and layout. We haven’t been inside but will try to get there in the next few days and feature it in a separate post.
