Urban Legends: The Town beneath Lake Lanier (Georgia)

Like many lakes in the South, Lake Lanier is the source of numerous legends. One of the most frightening stems from the fact that a town with cemeteries and homes was flooded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to create the lake.

According to reports the Georgia Department of Natural Resources reported more than 200 deaths in the lake in the past 30 years. Supposedly, the lake is cursed because some of the bodies were not removed from the cemeteries before the land was flooded in the 1950s.

“Legend has it the ghost of a long-dead woman roams this lake in a flowing blue dress. Mysterious arms reach out for swimmers from the watery depths. Angry spirits call people home to submerged graves,” CNN says.
