Breezewald Park


      Heading towards the town you will see Breezewald Park by the lake. In 1844 a steam powered sawmill was set up by Seth Paine somewhere near this end of the park, and it had the distinction of being the first steam powered sawmill in Lake County. Cross the street and take a stroll  down the walkway towards the lake.  The park is a great place to take a short breather, and grab a snack or drink at the Sunset Grill. Breezewald has been a popular beach for swimming, boating and picnicking since the 1930s or earlier.   You may choose to cut through Breezewald and walk down Lakeview Place to get to West Main, but then you’d miss out on the next couple of historic stops. Don’t wimp out! After your break get back on the sidewalk by the road and walk on to the stoplight up in town. When you get there you can hit NEXT.
