The Legend of Jack The Horse Lake

loggersThe Legend of Jack The Horse – In the days when logging was the principal occupation in these woods, the trees standing about this lake were to be logged off. Working in the crew located on this tract of timber was one powerful lumberman named Jack. According to tradition, in the struggle to get the last load of logs into camp before darkness fell on a wintery day, one of the horses hauling the sled gave out. Judging it was useless with no help near and dusk fast deepening, Jack loosened the harness and left the horse to its fate. Then, how to get the load into camp? At this point, the Herculean Jack stepped into the traces which had been occupied by the fallen horse and arranged the harness so that he might pull that side of the load. Thus, he proceeded into camp amid the shouts of his comrades. From that time forth, the man was known as Jack The Horse and the lake was named in his honor.
