Lake County Arts & History

Lake County has a rich environmental and cultural history.  From the logging days that established the many communities in Lake County to the festivals and events that were carved out by the diverse cultural aspect of Lake Co...our past celebrates our future.

Historic Idlewild, better known as Black Eden, was entered into the National Historic Registry of the United States in the mid-70's, celebrating the community of Idlewild's African American Heritage and the many 'stars' who performed there.  The likes of Della Reese, Sammy Davis Jr., Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington....graced the nightclubs in a forgotten era of black entertainment history.  Today, Idlewild is preparing for her comeback with a Centennial Celebration, in the summer of 2012.
