Alpine On The Lake is a History of the people of Lake Cavanaugh and the village of Alpine. In late 1890 Albert Lowe became the first known person to have settled on Lake Cavanaugh, at that time called Minnie Lake. Other homesteaders soon followed. By 1892 there were seven men having built cabins near the shoreline. Before this, knowledge of the lake was known only to the loggers who cut trees on the south face of Frailey Mountain, which rises above the lake to its north and town of Oso to its south. Over the next few year s settlers, land speculators, and entrepreneurs either purchased or were homesteading all the land encircling the lake. A village was established with the hope it would become a town. A hotel, Post Office and schoolhouse were built. Then as quickly as the lake and village were inhabited they were abandoned. What became of all the homesteaders and why did they leave? Alpine On The Lake is a history of the people who comprised the first of three time periods in the modern history of Lake Cavanaugh. The second being the logging years of 1923-1940, and the third is the current period begun in 1949 when Lake Cavanaugh officially became an organized community.
