The Early Years of the Geist Reservoir

A video was recently posted on YouTube showing 16mm file footage of Geist Reservoir from the 1940s to the 1960s. This is a great piece of history for Fishers, which includes information about purchase and the construction. It is interesting to see what is at Geist today and compare it to the past when it was promoted as 35 miles of open shore line with picnic tables and fishing from the shores!

The video is over 12 minutes long and contains footage from the Indiana Historical Society and the Indianapolis Public Library.

A thank you to Cathy Jo Bumgarner for sharing this in the Fishers Chatter Facebook group!
