Notes Mr. Alvah C. Bennett and his wife operated a summer lake resort called, "Lake Wyola Park" in Shutesbury, MA, between 1947-1997/ In 1997, DCR purchased the property and converted the site to a state park. After Mr. Bennett died in 1986 and the property purchased by the state, Mrs. Bennett forwarded some photographs, mostly of their Lake Wyola Park, to the Park Supervisor for Lake Wyola Park. These images are of their personal pre-1947 photographs of the Adirondacks.
