Lake Mattamuskeet Returns

Record #:
In the early years of the 20th-century, the water was pumped out of Lake Mattamuskeet in Hyde County. What remained was a vast agricultural area of unsurpassed richness six miles wide and 16 miles long. However, the pumps could not keep the water out, and the once fertile land is now under water again. The federal government has purchased the lake as a migratory waterfowl refuge.
