just off the lawn below the kitchen deck and right over the creek is
the remodeled Train Station. At least we used to call it the
because when we first saw it, it looked something like an old train
and we noticed it once had a telephone booth. We even found a
old narrow guage rail in the creek below.|
No trains ever came by, though.
And finally we learned the real scoop from the gentlemen who built
it for the kids camp that he ran here in the 1950's. This structure was really
the girls' bathroom.
Well, it no longer had bathroom facilities either.
So we came up with a new use for it. Now it's a space for serving
food or staging entertainment. It has a great deck for dancing and counter
space for serving food. It has electric service for a band or a DJ
and can be covered in case of rain.
The Pavilion is available to anyone
who rents facilities at Laurel Mill Lodge and serves as kind of an indoor/outdoor
option for your enjoyment. The deck is 28 by 28 feet, and there is
a roof over about a third of it.
