Check out this little piece of history about Atlas Township's wonderful Shinangaug Lake. The first image is from 1889, 2nd image is 1899, and 3rd image is 2021. Did you know that it was named Neshinangaug (or Neshinaguac) Lake by Native Americans? Even though we have tried to figure out why the name was changed, we haven't found a solid reference to explain the name change. We think it might have been changed just so the settlers had an easier time spelling it and pronouncing it.
Do you have any information about the Lake's name or any references to that info? If so, drop a comment below or send us a message! If you are interested in anymore Atlas Township history, check out the Goodrich/Atlas Historical Society!

Data Layer Spotlight: County-wide fire hydrants.

Would you believe there are over 15,000 fire hydrants across Genesee County? The data slowly accumulated over many years, but now is about complete as it can ever be. The fire hydrant locations provide a valuable benefit to residents by aiding County 911, utility maintenance crews and reducing fire insurance rates.

Building on the data presented by the Genesee County Metropolitan Planning Commission, here is a map interpolating the density to a surface using the โ€˜Kernel Densityโ€™ function in ArcMap.

This map probably is not enough to estimate deer population since other factors like quantity and speed of traffic would likely affect the rate and seriousness of a crashes.

Also, keep in mind that these are only crashes reported to police. So this map would not include many crashes like the example photo below.
