First of the Super Farms

Record #:
Lake Mattamuskeet, eighteen miles long and six miles wide in coastal Hyde County, was once drained as a part of one of the greatest American agricultural experiments of the 20th century. The lake bottom is said to contain seventy-five square miles of the richest soil in the world, rivaling that of the fertile Valley of the Nile. Ultimately, heavy rains ruined the multi-million dollar project.
