Powers Lake 734
Powers Lake is located near US 12 just a couple of miles north of the Illinois border and 25 miles west of Kenosha in Kenosha County. It has about 1400 residents who live around Powers Lake and the smaller Benedict and Tombeau lakes.

Powers Lake was first called Lakeville, then Nippersink (source unknown), and was finally named for James Powers, an early settler.
