LAKE JOCASSEE’S UNDERWATER HOTEL

SALEM, SC – Video has been released of divers exploring the remains of a hotel deep beneath the man-made Lake Jocassee.

The lake was created in 1973 by Duke Power electric company for a hydroelectric dam. While the company took over almost all the property in Jocassee valley before it was flooded, Debbie Fletcher’s family refused to give up their Attakulla Lodge hotel. It, along with a graveyard, still stands today, 300 feet below the surface of the lake.

CNN followed Ms. Fletcher on her dive to visit her childhood home.
