Butte des Morts Beach

 1931 N-M City Directory
I learn something new every day; yet another surprise from the city directory.  I had no idea there was ever a Butte des Morts Beach.  And apparently this cottage area eventually became the lots and homes along Lakeshore Drive.  Current maps show a West Butte des Morts Beach Road on the west side of LLBDM, between the railroad tracks and the lake shore.  One would think that it would follow that there'd be an East Butte des Morts Beach Road, yet the Menasha side, where the beach area is shown, became known as Lakeshore Drive.
