Cline Family Memories at
Pike Bend Resort

Pike Bend Resort, which is now Northern Lights Resort, was originally owned by Allan and Eleanor Cline. Thanks to Harlan and Heidi Schauer for providing the images given to them by Darlene Cline, and thanks to Dee Dee Thompson (Eleanor Cline's granddaughter) for providing captions. These photos are all vintage 1930s-1940s.
