From Chronological Record of the Principal Events That Have Occurred in Amesbury by Emily Binney Smith, 1901:
“In 1893, the Strathmere Club ‘was founded to improve Lake Attitash.'”
Strathmere Club was incorporated in 1896, according to incorporation papers at the Registry of Deeds in Salem, Mass. The club still exists on the northern shore of Lake Attitash as a parcel of land with several private homes.
