Product Description:

Kentucky's Water Wonderland, The Story of Lake Cumberland, is an entertaining and informative video program tracing the origins of the construction of Wolf Creek Dam, near Jamestown, Ky. The dam backed up the Cumberland River for more than 100 miles to form the 50,000 acres of water that was renamed Lake Cumberland by an Act of Congress in 1952.
 
The 50-minute video features historic, color film of the building of the dam, the moving of the city of Old Burnside and the filling up of Lake Cumberland in early 1951. Dam workers, residents who were forced to move and people who began Lake Cumberland's marinas are among more than 20 people featured in interviews recalling the emergence of the area as a water paradise.
