Johnson-Cox Post 78, American Legion purchased lakefront property and through several years of volunteerism and donations of time and equipment, created a beach on Porter Lake and made it open to the public. In 1963 the beach was dedicated in memory of Milton R. Bean (1923-1961), a Legionnaire who spent many long hours on the beach project before he was killed in a hunting accident. Two years later the beach was transferred to the Town of Strong.Show Details
