Lake Mykee was developed by the Hasselman family on the site of their original farm. "Mykee" is an acronym for the names of their two sons.

The development of Lake Mykee resulted in the relocation of the expansion of Highway 54 east of the lake and dam in the 1970s from the route of Old Highway 54 to the current route in order to provide four lanes without cutting off the subdivision entrance and to avoid the lake.
