Indian Lake Real Estate
A Little Bit of History – For 1200 years, this area south of the Missouri River and west of the Mississippi River was populated by Missouri and Osage Indians. They traded with French settlers such as Louis Joliett and Fr. Marquette. The Missouri Indians lost their cultural identity when they combined with the Oto and Shawnee.
In the mid-eighteen hundreds, the property where lot 1553 is located, was owned by the Sweetin family. The grave of Novble Sweetin, son of J. & E. Sweetin is there still.
Around 1929, the land, some 360 acres, was purchased by a man named A.J. Barnett. It was later sharecropped as a dairy farm. The farm was named “Indian Mounds Farm” because of the mounds all along Brush Creek. These mounds were used by the Indians to stake their teepees. This farm can still be seen at the top of the hill above the dam.

Did You Know?
Out of Indian Lake has come the World’s largest Buffalo Carp caught to date! An 80 lb 4 oz Buffalo Carp was caught on Mother’s Day, 1999, by a visitor right here at Indian Lake. Unfortunately, she didn’t have a fishing license so it was considered an illegal catch. Bummer!
