This lake was named for my husband Kic Starnes, (G.B. Starnes, III) his sister Ann Starnes, and his cousin Rick Wuellner by his grandfather Green Berry Starnes, SR. around 1954 made for his 3 grandchildren at the time. His grandfather spread the rumor that it was an old Indian name and folks bought into it (he was a jokester.) My husband Kic said the original spelling was lake KicAnnRic.. all one word.T hey always spell his name wrong. Should be KIC not Kick, lol.
Says BETTY A STARNES
A nice close by hotel is Home-Towne Suites Columbus; since you're here at Lake Kick-Ann-Rick and you want to take a horse ride, you may stop at Hunter Brook Farm.
