This photo taken circa 1928 shows horses pulling the last shed out of the bottom where Mitchell Lake is located. The lake was built in 1929. Prior to that the land was owned by the Anderson Family and was farmland. The trees were cut down in the process of preparing the land and were made into lumber to be used in building the house located at 1022 North Main Street in Mitchell.
