Historical Significance of the Lake

In the early nineteen hundreds the vision of a lake and a resort development was spawned Dr. Lucius B. Morse.

Morses resort was to be a man-made lake created by impounding the Rocky Broad River at Tumbling Shoals. This lake eventually became Lake Lure. The lake was named Lake Lure by Dr. Morse’s wife, Elizabeth Parkenson. The mountains contained a rare rock outcropping (Chimney Rock) that rose some 315 feet straight up, providing climbers with views of over 75 miles.

It is now the perfect place to experience a romantic stroll, say your vows, picnic and eat your wedding cake!
