: This photograph shows Lake Alma near Wellston, Ohio. A second photograph shows campers at Lake Alma State Park in the 1960s. The photographs measure 2.75" x 2.75" (6.99 x 6.99 cm). C. K. Davis built Lake Alma in 1903 as an amusement park. The park included a merry-go-round, dance pavilion, and outdoor theater. It closed in 1910 and the city of Wellston purchased the lake for a municipal water supply. Wellston later agreed to lease the land to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources for Lake Alma State Park. Camping, hiking, swimming, and boating became popular attractions. View on Ohio Memory.
