Lake Norman; a Lifestyle!
Lake Norman in North Carolina. Information on its origin and building it, real estate around the lake, lake towns and counties, boating and fishing including lake access, marinas and boating clubs.
This lake is a lifestyle worth living! Built by Duke Power in 1963 it is 34 miles long and eight miles across at its widest point. It is 760 feet above sea level and 140 feet at its deepest point. Lake levels are an important factor in living or boating on the lake. In the beginning, homes, family farms and the entire towns were to end up underwater. Some landowners refused to sell their land, instead, trading it for land along the future lake. Lots were selling for $2,000.
In the beginning Lake Norman was mainly weekend getaways for Charlotte NC residents on the south side and Winston-Salem residents on the north. Many weekenders put mobile homes on their waterfront lake property or built rustic shelters, comfortable enough for an overnight. They were more worried about piers, docks, boat houses and ramps. Today you can still find lake lots or homes that have all of the above mentioned amenities. If you are lucky enough to find them, maintain them and their permits! They are grandfathered, but cannot be torn down and rebuilt.
