Lake Lanier (officially Lake Sidney Lanier) is a reservoir in the northern portion of the U.S. state of Georgia. It was created by the completion of Buford Dam on the Chattahoochee River in 1956, and is also fed by the waters of the Chestatee River.
The lake is patrolled by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. 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.
These and other spooky tales have haunted Lake Lanier, in the foothills of the northern Georgia mountains, for decades.
The lake was created in the 1950s by flooding valley communities that contained a cemetery, fueling beliefs that it's cursed.
Historians say some unmarked graves and other structures were swallowed up by its waters.
More than 200 people have died in swimming and boating accidents on the lake since 1994, adding to its dark history.
