The Forest Lakes History Room

How did it begin?

When the Community Center was purchased in 2014, the FLOA Board decided that one of the rooms in the House should be designated as a  History Room.  A Historian was appointed to manage and maintain the room.  It was unveiled on August 1, 2015 at the 50th Birthday Celebration of Forest Lakes Estates.

New items are added regularly as they become available.   All residents are invited and encouraged to contribute historical items.

What is in the room?

An interactive map of Forest Lakes where residents can fill out a card with when they purchased their cabin and write special memories they have and pin it to their cabin location.

Donated items by residents, such as an old tobaggan, a totem pole, a wall crank telephone, a continuous running DVD of pictures from the first 50 years, and lots of pictures, posters and stories of history.  We welcome all residents to contribute items to add to the story of Forest Lakes.

When is it open ?

During the months of May through September.

Anytime there is an event or meeting at the Community Center.

By appointment with the Historian.  Send an email to and you will be contacted as soon as possible.
