Ski among the interesting stories told about the Racine Lakeshore is one of an Island three and one half Miles Long and a half mile stretching from Ortli it West directly of kale. The Story comes Down from e indians who were Here when it. Colbert Knapp came. No living person can testify said we whether the Story has any foundation but Casper Bittorf Pioneer Barber told the Story while visiting Here recently As capt. Knapp told it to him. Or. Bittorf had a Barber shop in the old Central hotel building Block on Washington Avenue. He now lives with his son in Madison. In support of the Story is the tale of a descendant of a Pioneer who told of rocks projecting above the water where the Racine reef is. He was supposed to have seen the rocks in 1844. Or to years after capt. Knapp came Here. Second lame tree loom i p. One of the stories connected with the reef tells of a Lone tree the Story is True there is re of believe that there was an Island the Lone tree was not the one which stood at the Edge of the Lake Bank a Short distance North of wind Point and which All mariners knew Well. The supposition is that at a Day Niani years before the arrival of capt. Knapp the Rocky reef was the location of the Island and that it stretched from wind Point Over Tho Rocky ledge which still exists and is an Extension of the quarries at the rapids and at St. Rita. It is not unlikely it is said. That at one time the Extension into the Lake was not an Island but was attached to the Mainland at wind Point forming a Large Hay. It May have been that the storms wore an opening through the narrow neck of land this Side of the Point. Once a break had been made the seas gradually washed out the rest of the Peninsula leaving Only the Rocky base now the Racine reef. Reef once real Hazard. The reef at one time was the greatest Hazard to ships. Many schooners were wrecked on the ledge. Even today there May be seen evidences of wrecks in pieces of Anchor chains Capstans and even an old boiler. Of such an Island existed on the site of the reef today Racine might be famous As a summer resort.
