When the Water Comes

Record #:
After the Fontana Dam was built in the 1944, seventeen miles of the Fontana Valley area was flooded. Family cemeteries that were above the flood waters have since been restored by the National Park Service under the direction of former resident Helen Cable Vance. Every Sunday between April and October, a group of people go to one of the twenty-seven family cemeteries for its Decoration Day.
