From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


ROUND LAKE, a city in sections 13, 14, 23, and 24 of Indian Lake Township, founded in 1882, was named for the adjoining Round Lake in Jackson County, on request of O. H. Roche, who owned a ranch of nearly 2,000 acres surrounding that lake. An alternative version of the naming is that when the Round Lake post office in Round Lake Township, Jackson County, was discontinued in July 1884, residents of Indian Lake requested the name of the village be changed to Round Lake, the post office following in January of 1885. The village was developed by the railroad and was platted in December 1882 and again in 1889 because no sites were sold under the original platting except for two railroad buildings; it was incorporated on October 14, 1892. The post office was established as Indian Lake in 1883, with Edgar Adelbert Tripp as postmaster.
