Webster Lake History

   
Nineteenth century statesman Daniel Webster (1782-1852),
who was born and raised in present-day Franklin,
made a speech in the oak grove near Aiken's Point in 1851,
when the lake was named in his honor.
The Webster Lake Association, incorporated in 1974,
exists to preserve, promote, and educate members and others
interested in the ecological and environmental quality of the lake,
and to enhance the opportunities for recreation,
social welfare, and community improvement and enjoyment.
 
If you happen to have any old photos of the lake,
please send them to [email protected] ,
and we will include them here.
