From the 1900 Federal Census:
Township or other division of county: Porter Township
Name of incorporated city, town, or village within the above-named division:
New Lincoln.
Can't find New Lincoln on any current map, but I do know that my grandmother
was born in Joliett 4 months after this census was taken and her brother was
born in Reinerton in 1902. New Lincoln must've been somewhere in that
general vicinity.

Stone Mountain Manor
Wayne Township
From the 1976 Commemorative Book, No. 490, Wayne Township, pp. 90-91:

In the year 1924, Jacob and Maud Boltz purchased approximately 300 acres of land situated at the foot of Stone Mountian, 1 mile west of Route 183 junction [with PA Route 895] at Summit Station. This land consisted of 4 farms which were primarily used for raising cattle and sheep.
In 1930, being aggressive people, they began to establish a summer resort known as Stone Mountain Manor. This became a well known recreation area throughout the county. It was so named after the railroad station, 'Stone Mount' on the Susquehanna & Schuylkill Railroad, better known as the "S & S" which then was located back of the park at the foot of the mountain and ran parallel with Route 895. ...
Stone Mountain Manor consisted of a large picnic area with pavillions, childrens playground, a building for refreshments, grille, dance hall, a beautiful lake for boating and a wooded area for hiking. The people from this area were grateful for a lovely park for picnics and social events. With no other parks around people came from far and near to enjoy gathering in this beautiful park. Churches, Sunday Schools and various organizations held picnics and reunions in the pavilions and picnic grounds. Youngsters enjoyed the swings, sliding boards, swimming and also hikes thru the cool wooded grounds. Many well known top name bands and orchestras were the added attraction for Saturday nights and Holidays.
Those who were inclined enjoyed rides on the Lake in row boats and canoes. Cottages too were available to rent for week end and summer vacations and provided a cool refreshing retreat under the trees near the Lake, away from the heat and hustle of the towns and one's daily work routine.
In 1958 the Manor was thriving and improvements were made on the pool and grounds to accommodate the crowds which gathered to enjoy the resort.
In 1960, a son, Benjamin took over the management of the Park until his death December 23, 1975.
Today [1976] the resort is owned and operated by Yogi Amrit Desai who owns and operates the Kripaul Yoga Ashram Retreat which has replaced the Stone Mountain Manor Resort.

--- end text from Commemorative Book ---

...
``This will be one of the biggest temples in America,'' said Pravin Desai, a native of India who is overseeing construction of the temple.
...

Purchasing the former Kripalu Ashram Yoga Center in 1987 for $575,000, Desai also has plans to develop the 240 acres of land into a residential/vacation village, cultural museums, shops, a community dinning hall, medical clinics and schools.
