Legend has it that the Potawatomi Indians, the original tribe of the area, called the lake Great Elk Heart Lake because of it’s general shape resembling an elk’s heart. The lake is fed by tens of thousands of springs and is considered to be one of the cleanest lakes in Wisconsin. In 1872 the Milwaukee and Northern Railroad added a direct route to access Elkhart Lake and created enormous opportunity for development of business and resorts.

Gambling was also an active part of Elkhart Lake’s history. By the 1920’s gambling was mostly patronized largely by Chicago residents. Never in any city had any games of chance been operated more openly with little regard to the anti gambling laws.
