Lake Lotawana was developed in the late 1920s and early 1930s
in eastern Jackson County by Milton Thompson. Legend has it
that Jesse James and the Quantrill's Raiders used to hide out in the
area where Lake Lotawana was later developed. In fact, the tale goes
on to say that Jesse James actually had a cabin on the lake ... though
no one has ever been able to confirm said cabin's location.
Today, the City of Lake Lotawana is home to over 2,000 residents.

Mother and I went to Sunday School and church. We went out east and rode around a lake in the afternoon.
