History[edit source | edit]

Lakeview was first settled in 1858 and platted in 1867 by Albert S. French, a settler from New York. It had been a Native American camp site. French named it for its location on the west side of Tamarack Lake. A post office was established on October 7, 1867, with Hiram S. Barton as its first postmaster. It was a station on the Chicago, Saginaw and Canada Railroad in 1879.[6] Further Reading, Lakeview Michigan is also the remnant of log transport via Tamarack lake and a small industry in pickles, as well as notable oddities such as the dance hall and hotel once located on the island centered in Lakeviews own Tamarack Lake. Lakeview as a small settlement was once taken almost completely out by fire but with government aid rebuilt once again.
