Why is Grass Lake called ‘Grass Lake?’

Many lakes have names whose explanations stretch back into the haze of history. Not Grass Lake; the name of this 1,360-acre lake is obvious.

Originally, Grass Lake—part of Lake County’s magnificent Chain O’Lakes—was a stretch of wild rice and lotus, whose beauty was a great draw for 19th and early 20th century tourists. In fact, the water plants were so thick in places, many early boaters had to use a pole rather than oars. During the 1950s through the 1970s, much of the lotus and wild rice disappeared. But, with a more enlightened eye on lake ecology, there’s been a revival in recent years.

Grass Lake is a great place to boat and fish. It’s also the site of boat races and fishing tournaments. And of course, in the middle of the lake is Blarney Island—which is the home of a famed tavern of the same name.
