Union City 's own "Daniel Boone," Austin "Skinny" Bullock (1908-77), moved into this, his beloved Elkhorn Lodge, on the first day of
summer in 1952. He was a colorful
local legend who loved to hunt, trap and fish, earning his living by landscaping and working for the village. If you lived along the river, Skinny would be a regular passerby as he rowed
himself to town or happily sang his way back home after an evening at the local
tavern. The great bluegill fishing in
Union Lake is part of Skinny's legacy, as he was caretaker of the rearing ponds in the 1960s.
