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.

WHO KNEW? LAKE LURE…….THEN AND NOW

Photographs capture moments in time and take you to places and times you may never have gone to before. Frozen so that future generations can get a glimpse of the way things used to be. We have been searching for old photos of Lake Lure and the surrounding area so that we may see some of Lake Lure’s history. We were very lucky to have found quite a few very interesting photographs, so we have put together an ongoing “Then & Now” article featuring some of these great pictures. Each week we will post a “then” photo and the following week we will post the same photo in present day.

Can you guess where this photo was taken? The answer is hidden deep inside Lake Lure!
