1200 Gwinn Island Road
Danville, KY 40422
I have been going to Gwinn since I was 6 weeks old. My Dad has been going to Gwinn Island since he was 13. This website contains many of his photos going back to the 1950′s.
My parents, grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles used to go there and stay in cabin 17. We would stay for a whole week every summer. I remember my mom, grandmother and aunts getting up early in the morning and making beakfast. Awww, waking up to the smell of bacon, eggs and biscuits was awesome!
I remember the owner Mr Wellington Cooper and Wally, Mr Cooper’s father-in-law who was in charge of the game and snack room. I remember their dog “whitey” which used to hang around our cabin when we were there every year.
I remember the Restaurant which used to be at the bottom of the hill and the large floating swimming pool complex. I used to play pinball in the Gameroom when I was a kid and listen to the Jukebox.
I will be posting lot’s of photos taken in the “hayday” of Gwinn Island from the 1960′s, including photo’s of the gameroom, the old docks, the pool complex and photos of the Herrington Lake.
