Jenison Electric Park

Posted by on 2 in Neighborhood News

On the recommendation of Dan Baldwin:  the new book “Jenison Electric Park” by Lois Jesiek Kayes is now out.  (Reader’s World carries it.)  Many of you know that the Jesiek brothers owned the largest marina on the lake at one time.  As the book’s foreword states, this book is the story of “two ambitious brothers and a piece of land along the lake that quicky became one of the most popular resorts & amusement parks in MIchigan during the early decades of the 20th century”.   The book is full of pictures & illustrations & maps.  It is a thoroughly enjoyable historical read on one of our favorite places in the world.
