"A tragic legend. Winola, whose name means "water lily," was a daughter of an Indian chieftain. Her involvement with a white captive brought dishonor, and once while looking at her reflection in the lake, she saw an image of her father in war paint. Fresh scalps hung from the chieftain's waist, and Winola recognized the scalp of her lover, "whiter than the water lilies." Winola threw herself at the reflection, never to surface again.

Lake Wynonah is a private Resort Community. It is ideally suited for both year-round and vacationing. It encompasses 1,476 acres of gently rolling hills and over 31 miles of hard-surfaced roads. About 2/3 of the community lies within South Manheim Township and the remainder lies within Wayne Township. Children who reside in South Manheim Township attend the Schuylkill Haven School District and those who reside in Wayne Township attend the Blue Mountain School District.
Here are pictures of the two lakes - Lake Wynonah, which is two and one-half miles long, up to 90 feet deep and about 175 acres, and Fawn Lake, which is 3/4 of a mile long, up to 45 feet deep and about 27 acres. It is also known as the "little lake." Both lakes are regularly stocked with bass, trout, pike and walleye, among other species.
