Third Lake


In 1861, Third Lake was known as Chittendon Lake, named after a family who owned a large amount of property north of Third Lake. At the time Druce Lake was known as Second Lake. The Alexander Druce Family owned the land south of what is now Druce Lake, as well as the lake itself. In 1959 the residents of a subdivision on the north side of the Third Lake, once known as Chittenden Lake, incorporated to control the pollution of its namesake and limit further development. Further development emerged in the early 1980s on the southern edge of the lake. Third Lake is the North American headquarters for the Free Serbian Orthodox Church.
