Lakeview Park Part 4

Here's a photo from February 1999 of the old King house that was located on what is now the west end of Lakeview Park.
   According to the book Images of Lorain, the King family had moved into the house (which was actually the remodeled carriage house) after a 1902 fire destroyed their home. Elizabeth King was the last family member to live there; after she passed away in the late 1990s, the city bought the property, demolished the house and added its acres to Lakeview Park.
