Over the years, both communities have been home to a great deal of religious and political fervor. The twin settlements witnessed lurid murders and occasioned visits from infamous travelers.

Truly, the combined history of Knightsville and Silver Lake merits and rewards exploration. But, alas, the complete story of this areas past has been lost to time. Knightsville was once peculiarly known as Monkeytown, and the reason for this is no longer known. The body of water that gave Silver Lake its name no longer exists--the water-filled basin used for recreational purposes at the turn of the century has been dredged and the basin filled in. Today, streets with tenements and private homesfill the area, along with a number of commercial enterprises.
