Filling an Ice House on Lake Wingra, Madison, Wisconsin (1907)

Lake Wingra is a small lake located inside the city limits of the U.S. city of Madison, Wisconsin.  The smallest of the five major lakes drained by the Yahara River in Dane County, Lake Wingra is bordered by the University of Wisconsin–Madison Arboretum on the south and west and the City of Madison on the remaining shoreline. The lake is considered an important fishery and is known for spring runs of large muskellunge. Henry Vilas Zoo, Wingra Boats, Wingra Park, and Edgewood College are located on the Lake's northern shoreline.

Historically, Native Americans made extensive use of the lands surrounding Lake Wingra, which takes its name from the word for "duck" in the language of the Ho-Chunk Nation. All that now remains of the Native American societies who used Lake Wingra are scattered sacred mounds in the surrounding uplands. Wikipedia
