This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of Lake Russel in Elbert County, Georgia and Abbeville and Anderson Counties, South Carolina with the following interesting stats carved into it:
Area: 41.64 Square Miles
Surface Elevation: 475 Feet
Shore Length: 540 Miles
Named for U.S. Senator Richard Brevard Russell, Jr.
Interesting factoid: The area flooded by the lake covered several areas of archaeological significance. There was a significant effort to explore and excavate these sites prior to filling the lake. Sites include Millwood Plantation, Fort Independence and a Native American village and mound. The lake also covered the historic Georgia-Carolina Memorial Bridge which was not demolished but remains intact beneath the lake. (Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
This map can be personalized (at no additional charge) with up to two lines of engraving. Leave notes during checkout and we will email a graphic proof to you for approval prior to production. Example:
