Mountain Lake Club

The History of Mountain Lakebook design and documentary film

Having worked with Mountain Lake for over six years at the time, MZD was already well informed on the history of this private Florida community, designed by landscape architect Fredrick Law Olmsted, Jr. with an 18-hole Seth Raynor golf course. This knowledge enabled MZD to serve as researchers, writers, and designers of a book that presents the history of Mountain Lake from its founding in 1915 by the “who’s who” of early 20th century industrial America to the present day. A short film with testimonials by long-time residents was produced and directed by Marc Zaref as a compendium to the book.
