Lester 'Marvelo' LakeOctober is magic month, and it is only appropriate that we celebrate by remembering two forgotten Franklin County men, Lester, “Marvelo” Lake and John Calvert from New Trenton!

Both men had tremendous influence in the magic and entertainment business. ┬áNot only was one a prolific inventor whose tricks and illusions are still used today, but the other was an actor and had the longest-running show known in the magic industry – over 80 years on tour!
