THE HISTORY of the BLUE DEER
The legendary Blue Deer of Lake Naomi was first spotted in 1868 by Vincent VanAnders, an Ice prospector & salesman traveling the Hemlock Trail who stopped at the 277 acre Lake Naomi to rest his horses and prospect. While making camp in the woods, VanAnders told an acquaintance in New York that he witnessed a majestic blue deer bounding through the woods.
VanAnders acquaintance was an employee of the New York Times and soon the story ran within its pages. A challenge was issued by New York millionaire William D. Rockefeller, an avid deer enthusiast, that any man to bring him the head of the Blue Deer would receive a generous reward. As a result of Rockefeller’s contest, hundreds flocked to Lake Naomi and made camp.
The hunt for the Blue Deer and its coinciding population boom is credited with giving the Lake Naomi Community its beginning. Despite many claimed sightings, and several false claims unmasked as clever dye jobs, the Blue Deer was never hunted.
In 1905 the Lake Naomi Community Council voted to ban official support of Blue Deer lore due to increasing weariness of the tales of VanAnders, who died a man of substantial wealth after making millions in Lake Naomi estate sales resulting from the population boom.
