HistoryThe very unique million-dollar 5000-square-foot log lake house was built in 1992-1993 by the Evergreen Park and Recreation District, with near perfect lodgepole logs imported from Montana. All recreational activities on Evergreen Lake are administered from the Lake House. It is named after the surrounding community.
