Economic Magic Flows From Lake James


Author(s):
Abstract:
Created in 1916, Lake James in Burke County was named for James B. Duke, founder of Duke Power. The lake features 6,800 acres of surface area and 150 miles of shoreline. Duke Power still owns the lake, and its real estate arm, Crescent Resources, manages the surrounding land. McBrayer discusses how environmental groups and Crescent Resources devised a plan in 2004 that protects the water and allows more access to the public, as well as providing Crescent a way to develop areas around the lake.
