History of Sloan's Lake: The history of Sloan's Lake is part of this area's charm. While the exact story may never be known, it is clear that the lake did not always exist. In the mid to late 19th century, a farmer named Thomas F. Sloan was granted this land by president Andrew Johnson. A common legend states that Sloan dug a well for his farm and, in doing so, inadvertently struck an aquifer, causing his land to flood by the next morning. From here, it grew into a lake. The area surrounding this lake was once home to Manhattan Beach, the first amusement park west of the Mississippi River, which later burned down. The history of this area is just as outstanding as the park itself.
Boundaries: The boundaries for Sloan's Lake are 26th Ave to the North, Colfax to the South, Sheridan to the West, and Federal to the East.
