At 40,000 acres, Lake Mattamuskeet is the state's largest natural lake. Starting in 1837, numerous attempts were made to drain it and to use the land for farms. The attempts to drain the lake were not successful, and in 1932, the U.S. Government purchased the lake. Anthony describes the draining attempts and the lodge constructed there to assist in the process.
