A Unique Feature of Indian LakeIn 1957, George B. Quatman purchased the west side of the Sandy Beach Amusement Park and the remainder on the east side in 1962. No alcohol or rock and roll music was permitted in the renovated Stardust Ballroom, Old Vienna Gardens and Plaza Hotel, now known collectively as the "San Juan Amusement Park." Mr, Quatman named the park after the apostle Saint John, the protector of the Virgin Mary. He dedicated the park to St. John to protect every woman that came into the park, and operated on a tenet of up-lifting morals of teenagers. Mr. Quatman also installed an Attraction of life-sized statues of the Last Super, which was popular with park visitors. He was never in the amusement park business for personal gain and he donated all the profits to orphans, convents and other charitable causes.
