The 1937 lodge began as a retreat for highway patrolmen and their families and a memorial to highway patrolman George Penn, who was shot and killed on the job. It was opened to the public in 1990. Rumor has it that the ghost who resides here is none other than George Penn. He has been seen walking around in Room 4 and has been known to steal the toilet paper from Room 2.
