Lake Pancoast, headwaters of Indian Creek, was named after one of the original developers of Miami Beach. In the early part of the century, produce grown on Miami Beach was sent to Miami by barge, through a canal connecting the lake with Biscayne Bay. This was winter vegetables and was much in demand in Miami proper during the tourist seasons of that time. The lake today presents a picturesque scene fringed with cocoanut palms and dotted with pleasure craft of all shapes and sizes.
