Abstract:
White Lake, a Bladen County lake, is a place of beauty. In the old days only two houses were at the lake--the Love's and the Melvine's, and people would come in buggies for picnics and house parties. Now, Iden says, with improved roads, automobiles, and modern conveniences, crowds have ruined much of its placid, peaceful atmosphere. Still it is a place of enjoyment to tourists.
