Lakes and Dams

Beginning in 1911 with the dam at Tallulah Falls and continuing until 1925 with the completion of the Terrora Hydro Plant, Georgia Power built a series of four dams in Rabun County on the Tallulah River. The accompanying hydroelectric plants are still in operation today. Not only did the reservoirs created completely change the landscape of Rabun County, but other consequences include the death of a town and the birth of several hundred jobs in the first quarter of the twentieth century.
