|| Lakewood Yacht Club
Sterling Hogan Sr., Captain W.R. Parker and J.D. Kirkpatrick decided to
build an elegant yacht club that would cater primarily to power boats.
The problem was the land that Mr. Hogan owed, did not have water access.
And if you’re trying to build a yacht club that IS a problem but this
did not stop their mission. With some land swapping, channel dredging
and club building the 3 gentlemen completed their quest in April 1955.
