Clear Lake, the largest natural lake in California, may very well be the oldest lake in North America. Scientific evidence has proven the lake to be at least 150,000 years old. The area took shape from volcanic action. Four thousand years before the rise of Egyptian civilization, the Pomo Indians were hunting, fishing and collecting plant foods on the shores of Clear Lake. 
    
In the 1850s the first European families found their way to Lake County.
   
Farming and ranching grew rapidly and toll roads began climbing over the mountains in the 1860s, bringing settlers in increasing numbers.
    
Natural mineral springs became immensely popular, drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the globe to "take the waters." Huge resort complexes were built. Lacking roads along the perimeter of Clear Lake, steamers plied the waters connecting visitors to resorts across the lake. Steam boats, and then gas-powered boats, became a favored means of transportation and recreation.
