Perfectly Nostalgic

by Anita L. on 5/10/2009

Our reason for purchasing this book was to learn more about the area my husband's family enjoyed for years. We now live at the Evans/Brant lake shore and know about many of the places featured so beautifully in this book. Having knowledge of the past gives us a better feel for the present. We had the honor of meeting Cheryl at a recent Evans Historical Society event and thanked her for bringing so much local information to those of us who would never have been able to truly appreciate the people and places of Evans and Angola.

Product Overview

Incorporated in 1821, the area that is now the town of Evans saw its first permanent settlers just prior to the War of 1812. The village of Angola developed later with the establishment of the railroad, which also brought industry, most notably the internationally known Emblem Bicycle Company. Lake Erie also drew visitors and residents to the area. The miles of shoreline were home to summer camps for adults, as well as children, and the wealthiest families in the city of Buffalo built their summer homes there. Prominent among these estates was Graycliff, the summer home of Darwin Martin, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. William H. Carrier, known as the "Father of Air-Conditioning" and the town''s most famous resident, was born and educated in Evans and graduated from Angola High School in 1894.
