"Not far from the mouth of the Forest River was the strange town he heard the elves speak of in the king's cellars. It was not built on the shore, though there were a few huts and buildings there, but right out on the surface of the lake, protected from the swirl of the entering river by a promontory of rock which formed a calm bay. A great bridge made of wood ran out to where on huge piles made of forest trees was built a busy wooden town, not a town of elves but of Men, who still dared to dwell here under the shadow of the distant dragon-mountain. "

Lake-Town as seen in The Hobbit

Lake-town (also known as Esgaroth) was a human settlement on the Long Lake. It was here that the Company of Thorin Oakenshield rested after escaping from Thranduil's Kingdom. After Smaug was awoken by the Company, he flew to Lake-town in a rage and devastated the wooden, flammable buildings. However, Bard the Bowman was able to kill the dragon with a Black Arrow and Smaug fell into the lake in his death.

In Edain Mod, the units of Lake-Town can be recruited by Ered Luin from the Lake-Town Outpost, which costs 800 to build. It can be upgraded with a watchtower for defense, a well to heal injured allies, town houses to generate extra resources, and a barracks to produce units of Lake-Town as well as Bard.
