Sometime in the 50s there was a petition to create a scenic loop drive between four lakes — Kapowsin, Ohop Lake, Tanwax and Clear Lake.
By adding just 2.1 miles of road construction, people could cut off 11 miles of driving time, improve fire protection, increase school bus service and better postal delivery. Who could argue with that?
The petition makes a good argument. And the map is fabulous.
(I’m making the assumption that this was a 1950s petition, based on the map that states the Eatonville Lumber Company is putting out 200,000 ft. daily, and that the petition states Harry Sprinker is our Commissioner. If you have more information, please share!)
