In the early years, the small settlement of Moab with the post office, local mercantile store, the only telephone in the area, and the Northern Pacific train station was the business center for local residents. Newman Lake was named for William Newman who settled there in 1960. The lake shore became the home to many resorts, dance halls, and family cottages. The inviting lake was popular for swimming, fishing, and boating during the warm months. In the winter, ice skating was a popular sport. Thompson Creek, named for Lewis Thompson, was a noted trout fishing stream and the surrounding area was home to early homesteaders. Includes Index and over 300 archival photos / maps.
