General Information:

From Good Hart General Store web site

The Lamkin Lakeshore Lodge located at the base of Lamkin Hill in Good Hart. The original resort was built in 1912 by Mr. And Mrs. Lowell Lamkin and housed a summer hotel, rental cottages, general store, and post office where both husband and wife served at postmaster. The store was also home to the first school for Native Americans located in Good Hart.

A post-WWII gas explosion destroyed the entire original structure, but left the resort cottages and dining house in tact. By 1968 the place was closed due to poor health of the operator. All contents were auctioned off. As for the exact location, I found what appears to be the foundation of an older structure along the shoreline parallel to Good Hart. I am not sure if this is the old Lodge but it's a maybe for now.
