Ross Elevator’s Lake Hamilton Install Captures Project of the Month for December

Our congratulations go out to Ross Elevator of Little Rock, Arkansas for capturing their first Garaventa Lift Project of the Month. The installation was at a gorgeous waterfront home located at historic Lake Hamilton in the Hot Springs area. The nearby area is well-known for a couple of reasons. Hot Springs National Park was the first ever National Park in the USA. Since the United States essentially invented the concept of National Parks, it could be that this is the oldest National Park in the world.

Another interesting fact about the area is that it was home to many notorious gangsters during the prohibition era of the 1920′s and early 1930′s. Local legend has it that Al Capone owned a home on Lake Hamilton and had a secret tunnel installed that went from his Living Room to his boat launch on the lake for a speedy exit.

Today, the area is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Arkansas.
