The original Rest Haven was built around 1914 at Lake Andes on the water and was connected to the shore by a 700' foot bridge. It was destroyed by a storm in 1922 but was quickly rebuilt.  The dance hall was very popular and initially hosted orchestras and big bands. That music eventually replaced by rock and roll in the late fifties. Rest Haven attracted the best regional and national bands, usually playing to packed houses on weekends. It was eventually destroyed by fire but will be remembered by many loyal fans who enjoyed years of unforgettable entertainment.
