Age 23

The original Mt. Pleasant City Swimming Pool facility was built in 1942 and served the community and surrounding areas for 38 years. In June 1978, the swimming pool utility building was severely damaged when an early morning fire ravaged the roof, office, locker rooms, chlorinator, filters and other equipment. Arson was suspected as the cause of the fire and an investigation was launched. In June 1980, the pool re-opened and that swimming season got underway, but it would be the last year that the pool would be opened. It was officially closed by the city council, labeling it as too dilapidated to fix because of the poor conditions of the facilities. 

Name Meaning

Scandinavian, German, and English: topographic name for someone who lived by a grove, Old Norse lundr; the word was adopted into northern dialects of Middle English and also into Anglo-Norman French. There are a number of places in England named with this word, as for example Lund in Lancashire, East Yorkshire, and North Yorkshire, Lunt in Merseyside, and Lound in Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, and Suffolk, and the surname may derive from any of these. The Swedish surname is probably more usually ornamental. When surnames became obligatory in Sweden in the 19th century, this was one of the most popular among the many terms denoting features of the natural landscape which were adopted as surnames, usually compounded with some other such term.
