Yankee Lake was a man-made lake, first known as Lingamore Lake, then renamed to match the name of the creek which was dammed to create it. Ernest Houston Stewart and John Jurko purchased land around the creek and opened a dance hall in 1928. It became a regular stop for acts during the Big Band era including Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Cab Calloway, Count Basie, and Duke Ellington. Famous gangsters of the era like John Dillenger may have even visited the ballroom. Although the popular swimming lake was drained in 1979, Yankee Lake has been reinvented to host motocross races, a successful seafood buffet, classic rock concerts and a banquet hall. Most recently it has become a venue for bike nights and truck nights.
As of the census of 2010, there were 79 people, 31 households, and 25 families living in the village. The population density was 154.9 inhabitants per square mile (59.8/km2).
