This 1928 photo shows the temporary Municipal Bathing Beach at Lake Mitchell, located on the south side looking northeast. You can see the intake tower in the middle, which is still there. You can see cars on the road east of the dam. In 1928, the land was cleared of trees and Firesteel Creek was dammed to form the lake. (Photo courtesy of the Mitchell Area Historical Society)
