History

A post office called Three Lakes has been in operation since 1885. [4] The community was named from its location near three lakes. [5] As an early railroad was being surveyed, the surveyors had to backtrack and re-route the tracks two times to get around the three lakes. The explanation penciled in on the surveyor's map was 'three lakes', hence where the town got its name.
