Docks and patios are the link between high-dollar homes and the placid waters of Lake Wabaunsee, west of Eskridge, Kansas. The 235-acre lake was built during the Great Depression, providing jobs, and the sale of building lots financed the construction, which was finished in 1939. With the help of heavy rains in 1941, the soring-fed lake was full in 1941. During World War II, barracks were built to house German prisoners of war at the lake.
