Vintage Green Lake Postcard

Another vintage Green Lake postcard from the collection, this one showing the "drive past Maplewood Hotel, Green Lake, Wis."
The Maplewood Hotel was known as one of the last of the early resorts. Situated on what is now south Lawson Drive just west of the city of Green Lake, the property encompassed what is now Hattie Sherwood Park. In operation from 1891 until falling into disrepair in the mid-1950s and eventually closing in 1958. The land was later sold for residential development.

Florence, the sender, says "Expect to be in WI after the 27th 740 Cass St. -Florence."

Nothing more than an address on the back. Postmarked June 21, 1906.
