 Penn Lake's history began in 1938 when the first road was built gaining access to the lake and around it. The Lake area was purchased from the Albert Lewis Estate by the Goeringer family. The Goeringers surveyed the land and made lots available to the public. At this time, careful planning was done to preserve the tranquility of the lake and to ensure that the lake can be enjoyed by all members of the community.

Every lot buyer and owner had full use of Penn Lake, plus special beaches and recreational areas were provided for use by all owners.
