Tag: Lakeville Hotel
Racing teams for the Vanderbilt Cup Races typically had local headquarters to store and work on their racers and also provide lodging. In 1905 and 1906, the Locomobile team from nearby Bridgeport, Connecticut set up their headquarters at Maple Cottage, a farmhouse and inn located in Lakeville (now Lake Success).
On the courses for both the 1905 and 1906 Vanderbilt Cup Races, the Lakeville Hotel was a great place to catch the action.
Walter McCarthy: "I came across this journal "Automobile Tours 1908" while browsing through some of my old original literature. This issue included information on four hotels on the Vanderbilt Cup Race course."
