Lakesite celebrates 50th anniversary

City of Lakesite/ State Sen. Bo Watson, left, and state Rep. Greg Martin, center, present a special 50th anniversary proclamation to Lakesite Mayor David Howell to honor the city's milestone birthday.

The town of Lakesite is celebrating its 50th anniversary as a municipality. Originally a subdivision of some 200 homes built in the 1960s, Lakesite incorporated as a city in January 1972 with a vote of 75-15. Since its incorporation, Lakesite officials have paved area roads in need of repair, rehabilitated a duck pond in a local park, and seen its population double in size. With a population of 1,865 and five municipal employees, the town enjoys a robust business district. Lakesite is the second smallest municipality in Hamilton County.
