WHO KNEW? LAKE LURE……..THEN AND NOW

Did anyone guess this location? If you said Buffalo Creek Road you’re correct!! If you are driving towards the resort from Bald Mountain Lake this is the shot. Some of the terrain has changed and the road is now paved, but the photos are still very similar.

 Long ago……well maybe not that long ago roads were made of dirt!! Can you guess where this picture was taken?

WHO KNEW? LAKE LURE……..THEN AND NOW

Here is the big reveal of last week’s photograph. Was anyone able to guess where that picture was taken? 

This photo was taken in 1924 and is the Chimney Rock Consolidated School. The caption read that it was near Havener’s Point and was located in what is now, “most likely” the middle of the lake!!

Since the school has been under water for more than 80 years, there is no way of knowing where the exact location is. Hopefully further research will lead me to someone that can tell us.

If you look at the photos side by side, you will see that the mountain on the right side of the current photo looks very similar to the mountain behind the school in the old photo. So we have determined that this is probably in the same location. If anyone has any more information or even better, more photographs please contact me at 828.625.9600 ext.217 or email andrea@lakecountrync.com.
