Historical Marker 19 – Lake Ripley

In Ripley Park just east of Cambridge is a marker entitled “Lake Ripley”, but the text is really about Ole Evinrude. Yes, that’s as in Evinrude outboard engines for your fishing boat.

As an aside, crews were working on Park Rd. the day we saw this marker. They used a “mechanical flagman” (or whatever it’s called) which I had never seen before. There was one of these at each end of the area in which they were working.
