The business district and nearby homes saw destruction due to a fire in 1890. The automobile generated tourism to the village and Lake Ripley making it a tourist town in the 1920s. Cambridge used a blue and yellow umbrella to help promote their new found claim as a tourist attraction that is still used today.
