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).
