Hemlock Lake

1930 - From Livonia History

Scott Family Finally Leaves Hemlock

This year marked the end of an era. For 75 years, the Scott family had been coming every summer to their cottage and property on the west side of Hemlock Lake. They were, at last, forced to sell their property to the City of Rochester, which consisted of 175 acres of side hill land. Some of the land had been converted to grape vineyards several years earlier. There were also 1 1/2 acres and 175 feet of lake frontage. According to the records they were paid $55,000 for the property they had enjoyed for so long. They were just about the last people to sell out. Note: Grapes from their vineyard were at one time picked, packed and sold from a small building by the side of the road near the foot of the lake.
