Dan Patch Line arrives at Antlers Park
The Dan Patch line had a stop at Antler's Park, Lakeville .Antlers Park was a 40 acre amusement park located on Lake Marion in Lakeville, Minnesota.  Colonel Marion Savage built Antlers Park to attract passengers to the Dan Patch Railroad.

In order to attract a multitude of passengers [to his Dan Patch Railroad, Marion] Savage put Antler’s Park on the map [named in allusion to the former abundance of deer in this region].  It was located on the southeast shore of Prairie Lake [renamed Lake Marion in honor of Savage], and contained summer homes and facilities for picnics, boating, swimming, fishing, hunting and dancing.  The excursion trains to Antler’s Park were always very crowded.  Those who remember riding these crowded trains remember the good times both on the ride and in the park.
