Pike’s Point – Eagle Lake

Thought many might enjoy this photograph of the south end of Eagle Lake during its high water mark of 1917-18. This is a part of the Gallatin/Wachhorst collection that I am slowly scanning. As to the origin of the name of Pike’s Point, is unknown to me, but documents indicate that it was so named prior to 1920. The 1979 Pikes Point Archaeological Report did not shed any light on the topic. Now is there any willing takers that want to locate approximately and take photograph of what the view looks like today?
