Rakish Reeds Lake Book
Brand Mason Jones
In the 21st century, the mention of Reeds Lake in East Grand Rapids conjures images of wealth and refinement, its shores lined with beautiful homes and a yacht club. The lake’s history, however, is both colorful and surprising. This book explores everything from the early pioneer settlers to the problems that arose—liqueur, gambling, rowdy sports, drownings, and murder—when the lake became a popular leisure destination.
