Sailing on it. Swimming in it. Walking by it. Gazing at it. Perhaps the most common bond we who love Culver share is our interaction with and appreciation for Lake Maxinkuckee. We share that bond with Henry Harrison Culver who in an interview in 1893 described some of his earliest memories with the lake.
I spent the whole summer (of 1883) by the side of the lake. I fished nearly all day, and lived in a tent. When fall came, I was a different man, it had such a glorious effect on my health that I determined to acquire property here.Henry Harrison Culver
