What is now known as McMicken Lake used to be called Shangra La, then it was called Pine Mountain Lodge. Mr. McMicken owned the Alabama Lumber Company and sometime used a saw mill and planer mill he had on the property. Mr. McMicken was a religious man and built dormatories (two of them) on the property to have summer camps for religious groups. He also had a large dining hall with a large kitchen. He had a chapel on the property that had a roof but only one side finished. Mr McMicken had a few livestock on the property and he hired my stepfather and mother to look after his property. We lived in a small house on the property which had no running water, a wood burning stove and an outhouse. Compared to today, it was pretty rough. But being I was 12 years old at the time, I guess I didn't mind all that. I remember more being lonesome as we were way out in the country with no means to go anywhere, except to walk a mile to catch a school bus. As I recall, we had to move because they were going to start building the nearby interstate highway and I guess Mr McMicken had to sell the property. At least that was what I was told. Haven't been back in 60 years but I found the lake on Google World. James H. Jenkins
