Brian Orbin, a 10th-grade student at Lake-Lehman Senior High School, is currently displaying his Harveys Lake memorabilia at the Back Mountain Memorial Library. His collection consists of photographs, prints, postcards, old bottles and other items, including actual sand and water samples from the lake’s beaches and creek.

Orbin has been collecting Harveys Lake items for two years. He mainly buys the items for his collection but has received some as gifts. He said he grew interested in the history of the lake after riding his bike around it and during his rides he began to “wonder what used to be here.” Now he does research on the lake’s history and has even gotten first-hand accounts from people who have lived in the area for years.

When asked what he enjoys most about collecting the lake items and studying its history, Orbin, sounding like a natural teacher replied, “I would love to tell people all about the history of the lake because so few people today know what a fun place the lake used to be.”

Orbin resides at Harveys Lake with his parents, Christine and Joe Orbin. His collection will be at the library through Nov. 1.
