My Great Grandmother (Pennola L. Jones)was Lake Milton Village's first Lady Mayor in 1930 until 1934. She also had a resturant Called Jack Horner's Corner and later my Great Uncle Bill Timblin ran it and it was called The Party Bar. Does any one remember it or have any pictures of it? I would dearly love to have some. Please feel free to email me at [email protected] Thanks

John...You are right to think that the memories of Lake Milton when we were children, no responsibilities,living on a Lake, Making new friends every summer was a magical time! I lived 1 street over from you on Glenwood Ave. There was a small wooded area that divided our backyard from Habuda's. Do you remember the saw mill that was back in the woods from your street..The lilly pond by Hewitts where everyone went ice skating?
I often tell people that even though we were poor financially,we felt rich living in a resort community,with a public beach and an amusement park..wow!
Sorry to read about your Mom. My parents are gone now too. We lost my dad more than 20 yrs ago, and my mom passed 2 yrs ago. It was fun "remembering" with each one that posted here I live in Phoenix Az now,nowhere near water ,and I miss it

My family went to Lake Milton/Craig Beach every summer when I was very young. I rode on the merry go round every night..and only one horse..I named "Peggy". I still have her picture. I often wondered what became of her. I remember the rides, the lake, frozen custard and french fries with vinegar. My family loved it there and I have many fond and happy memories of it there.
I bought a horse from the Merry go round. It might be Peggy. [email protected]

My grandparents lived on Forest Ave.in Lake Milton from the early 40's to 1960. They owned the "Bowling Alley, Ski Ball & String Games" in Craig Beach Park and my brother, sister & I spent every summer during our childhood there. We would work in the park and enjoy the benefits - free rides, good french fries (w/vinegar), frozen custard...all the good things in life at the time. Wouldn't have traded it for the world!!!
I believe my dad ran the bowling Alley sometimes for the owner
My parents owned the cigarette wheel,shoot the ducks,and the ride the flying scooters with some kiddie rides that were sold along time ago. I had been trying to find out if the flying scooters were still in operation. Yes those were some very fond memories

I am the sister of the two previous people writng comments on Craig Beach/Lake Milton. My father rented a big house every summer from one of his customers. It slept 14 people and we always filled it. Their name was Gardner. We had wonderful times there, especially at the beach. There was a large shiny raft type board in the water that we would all sit on and end up in the water when it would tilt from too much weight. Each evening we would go to the amusement park and "pull the string" and always got the fries with the vinegar. We would play the juke box in the beer garden where "Skip" worked. His wife Mary worked the souvenir stand. Many good times without spending much money. A couple of years we were lucky enough to hit "Community Day". For kids it was a magic day as everything in the park was free and they handed out dixie cups to everyone, also free. We took our parents back for a day in 1998 as part of their 60th anniversary celebration. Many good memories of our childhood.

Its interesting to know that a small city brought so many people together, this was a quote i heard from a movie, but it still represents our little city where everyone helped everyone, in times of need,I am going back, soon to see my childhood life once again,through the eyes of my grandson,Life works in very mysterious ways,I think sometimes we repeat our lives in different ways.Our city belonged to the families who lived there a life time,I can still smell the barbecues.
and hear the music, we all danced to, the rockin park, and all the families who once alive and going to the little park,for fries or an ice cream cone, watching there kids on the rides which etched memories as mine into our hearts and souls,
