The Manitou Beach resort area offered dining, dancing, picnic groves and water activities to visitors at the turn of the century.

    Caswell: "Ed Spelman and I are at the Elmheart Hotel interview-ing Mr. George Wiedman. Mr. Wiedman you owned theElmheart Hotel once at the end of the Manitou Trolley Lineand can remember all about the old times in this area.So can you tell us a few things. For example, wé wouldlike to know your history. Where did you start and how didyou happen to end up here?"»Wiedman: "My folks came here in 1903 from Rochester. They had aplace on State & Allen Streets, a saloon and bowling alley,before we came here. My father's name was George' and he andMichael O'Loughlin were partners. O'Loughlin died in '54,at the age of 86."Caswell"What was here in 1903? Was this hotel built?"Wiedman:"It was built in 1892. Frederick Odenbach built it andlost it to Al Skinner's father. Skinner's father had awarranty deed to this property and Odenbach came in. on aquit claim deed."Question: "Is that the same Odenbach who had a place across theroad?"Wiedman: "Yeah, he went from here up there."Caswell: "Did he build that other place?"Wiedman: "No, that was built in 1888."Caswell: "What was it originally?"Wiedman: "Matthews and Servis built that.

Then Boris, a lawyersaid the judge made an error and he took up Skinner's fight.The next time around, Skinner beat him and took over thehotel. An Elm tree decided the lawsuit - that's where itgets its name. "Question: "Mr. Wiedman, will you just tell us about things - asyou remember the old days?"Wiedman: "The trolleys came in 1892."Question: "So it was already a good operating line, when you came."Wiedman: "Yeah, and they quit in October."Caswell"What did you do all winter?"Wiedman: "We would go back to the city. It was a summer business."Question: "Tell us about that Pittsburgh group that used to comehere? Eddie Ushold at the Grove House was telling uswhere the Colony Club went and everybody kicked them outuntil they finally got here. Remember those places?"Wiedman"No."Question: "He said they were down at the old Crescent Beach Hotelbut they only had them one year and didn't like thegroup.nWiedman"The Colony Club was at Odenbach's first and then moveddown here.

    Caswell: Mr. Wiedman is now showing us a photograph of the Elmheartat the end of the Manitou Trolley Line. It shows that thetracks ran along the breakwall ending in front of theElmheart Hotel. He is also showing us another picture whichhas the name WEIDMAN AND O'LOUGHLIN which was the originalname of this proprietorship. It shows two of the old carsand the people are disembarking in front of what is now thepresent Elmheart Hotel. The building has a lot of superstructure with the name "The Elmheart" on an upper level andwhat looks like balconies and an observation tower. Thepicture shows ladies in their long dresses and the men andboys in their.suspenders. Mr. Wiedman is just mentioningthings that were here at Manitou Beach. "What were yousaying about all the attractions?"Wiedman: "We had a merry-go-round, shooting gallery, toboggan slide,Caswell :Wiedman:Caswell:bath house.""Were there any restaurants besides yours?""No.""Were there any other places to sleep and stay?"Wiedman: "No." (Editors Note: The Manitou Hotel would have been inoperation nearby, so this reply is strange.)Caswell: "How many rooms did you have?"Wiedman:Caswell :Wiedman:"Twenty-five.""They are still here but you aren't using them?""No, we have not had a roomer since 1931."

George Gobelsays you can hardly get them anymore-"Caswell: "We will record here a rather interesting point. Mr.Wiedman has been very adamant about lending the HistoricalSociety any of his photographs. The reason is that he lenta number of them to a man who put out a book on the oldManitou Trolley and he did not return the photographs.(At this point, Ed Spelman is copying some of his photo-graphs on the premises and also is going out to get thebook from his car and have Mr. Wiedman identify the pictureswhich he lost. It is very possible that Ed may have boughtthose pictures, in which case duplicates can be made andgiven to Mr. Wiedman.) We have been talking to Mr. Wiedman,who mentioned that the cash register which he has is from1896. Somebody has painted it green but it is probablysolid brass. (Note: As part of the estate, this cash regis-Wiedmanter is now in the possession of his heirs.)"When we came here, Odenbach gave us one year...he said wewould be back in Rochester (Dutchtown) in one year and weare still here and Odenbach quit in Ml."-6

    Re: Manitou Beach

    It's not part of the city (I'm a retired Rochester PD sergeant). Manitou Beach Rd dead ends at the beach (duh) and there are homes in that area (built mostly in the 60's, 70's, and still being built to this day). I believe that area is part of the Town of Hamlin. I'll check to be sure, though. There are still some vacant lot and small fields there. I may scout out the area this Sunday and try to talk to some of the locals. I'll let you know if I find anything out.

    Re: Manitou Beach

    Montana Jim, the city "beach" is called Charlotte Beach. I do hunt there because it was as popular as Manitou Beach Park back in the day. I've only found newer coins. I usually get a coin about every 10-15 minutes. I usually search the area of the refurbished wooden horse rides, etc. Although, the Manitou Beach area you posted looks even more promising for old coins and such.

    Re: Manitou Beach

    I used to work for the NYS Park Police (seasonal) when I retired from RPD. I was stationed out of Hamlin Beach State Park. Be very careful - MDing is definitely not allowed in NY State Parks. The Park Police WILL confiscate your detector and WILL issue you an appearance ticket for Hamlin Town Court. I'm not kidding. To be totally honest with you, you would not find anything of real value there. It's not worth losing your metal detector over. The full-time Park Police officers will be notified by the park staff if they see you with your detector. Trust me on this.

    Re: Manitou Beach

    I'll heed your warning and not hunt there. It's not worth risking my MD and being kicked out of the campground. But, I do know people who hunt there a few times a summer and have never had a problem. I think they go to area 2 which isn't really maintained anymore. (It might be area 3).

    I don't recall them ever finding anything significant.

    Is Lakeside Beach a state park? I haven't been there in a long time so I don't remember who owns it.

    Re: Manitou Beach

    Here is an interesting website regard MDing in NY: http://www.metal-detecting-ghost-tow...-New-York.html

    Lakeside Beach State Park is run the same as Hamlin Beach State Park. The each park manager lives right in the parks. In regards to MDing in Hamlin, the Park Police substation is located in the center of the park just near the entrance to the campsites. A Park Police Officer and/or Park Ranger was mandated to stay in these parks until 0400hrs (I used to work the 1800-0400hrs shift). I am no longer a Seasonal Park Police/Park Ranger (since 2005), so I'm not up to date on any changes. I do remember a guy losing his detector to the Park Police in Hamlin Beach State Park but I am not aware of what the circumstances were.

    I have been MDing Genesee Valley Park (City of Rochester) and have been having success there with newer coins. So far, I'm the only one that goes out there. The Genesee River runs right through the middle of it and the original bandstands (refurbished) are still there. That park has an interesting history to it. Check it out on the website.

    Re: Manitou Beach

    I went to hamlin with the wife and kids last summer.talked to parks guys about detecting.You can only detect the BEACH and only a certain time of the year.That means all that grass hasnt been detected.I think its total crap they dont let me detect that.I pay alot of taxxes in this state and i cant look in the grass at that park,,wit or without a permit.Must be nice to be the guy on his high horse dictating these stupid rules..That park is dead for the size of it.its in dis repair in areas and they are worried about me digging a flap to get to the coins and all the gargbage i would remove.They had 1 beach open out of about 8 ..The place is dieing,and yet they dont want us to detect.I dont understand the reasoning behind the park laws other than some desk jockey made the laws knowing nothing about the hobby.I hope someone who makes these laws takes up the hobby so we can have some changes made.We need to set up like New England where we work together with the gov to save our finds.Happy hunting guys

    No offense, but that's what you get when you ask permission. Their has been a lot of debate over this, don't want to get into it again, just my opinion.
