Martin Kane explores the rich history of the Lake Hopatcong, presenting a look at the "jewel of the mountains" through juxtaposition of historical and contemporary photographs .
Hoptacong's large size and location at over 900 feet above sea level made it the perfect destination. Hotels, cottages, and camp sites sprang up within a few years of rail service reaching the lake. From those early days as a resort driven by railroads and grand hotels, Lake Hopatcong evolved. The lake continues today as a wonderful recreational source.
