Manage episode 339405126 series 3003280
Welcome to Lake Wylie, South Carolina, "Where geography, people, and economic vitality have fashioned Southern lifestyle!" Lake Wylie is located in York County 16 miles South of Charlotte, NC along the North and South Carolina border. When the border was resurveyed in 2012, it was discovered that some of the properties in Lake Wylie were actually located in North Carolina. The area is officially a census-designated place (CDP) instead of a town. The CDP is located on a peninsula along the shore of the Lake Wylie. The lake was formed in 1904 by the Catawba Power Company when it dammed the Catawba River to build a hydroelectric power plant. The lake was originally named Lake Catawba, but was renamed Lake Wylie in 1960 in honor of one of the founders of the Catawba Power Company. The lake has become a popular recreation area for the region. We hope you enjoy our visit to Lake Wylie!
