Once upon a time a landlord named Montgomery lived on the shores of Belhavel lake. He was a tyrant for anyone who didn't pay the taxes would be turned out of his home. He lived in a castle but now there is no trace of it because the stones were casted from the house to pave the bounty road. He was a very rich man and his castle was adorned with gold. Before he died he got very poor and he died in a work house.
