Description There appears to be possibly three vessels powered by steam that at one time plied the waters of Orchard Lake. The first and perhaps most prominent was the "Pride of the Lake", owned by A. F. Armstrong & Company of Pontiac. Her capacity was variously reported from 100 to a maximum of 150 passengers. The fare was twenty-five cents per person. The others were the "Little Beauty", a rival of the "Pride of the Lake", and the "Dell", of which little is known. Excerpt from "Song of the Heron" by Charles Martinez.
