Lake Rabun - Georgia's Lake Como
A true treasure to behold, the Centennial History of Lake Rabun is a work of art and a uniquely personal window into the heart of the people who have loved this special place for the last 100 years. The 280 page book is a literal feast for the eyes and contains a comprehensive history of Lake Rabun, or "Lakemont" as the "long-timers" call it.
The book begins with the rich history of Rabun County and parallels the growth of our state's capital city, Atlanta. The 100 years are all thoughtfully treated, drawing on the rich resources gained by our Living History Committee that interviewed 40 of our residents and then followed up with extensive research at the Rabun County Courthouse, Rabun County Historical Society and Georgia Power Archives. There is a wide variety of historical photos - most of which have been graciously donated by our community. Along with them is a beautiful collection of current photography showcasing the lake community today. Using all the resources that were gathered, Bob Voyles expertly wove the history of Lakemont into a seamless narration.
Interspersed with the most complete history of the lake yet attempted, are numerous memorable stories highlighting eras and points of reference that are uniquely Lakemont. This large coffee table book is one to cherish and to pass down to future generations.
We have published a handsome leather covered Standard Edition for $85.00 and we are also offering a Limited Edition book with the same handsome leather cover and a special linen jacketed slip cover that features beautiful old lake photographs. The Limited Edition books contain our Living History DVD and are autographed by the authors. The cost is $140.00.
The caliber of this book is equal to or exceeds other high quality architectural books with which you are familiar. A sample of the book showing representative pages is attached to this link
Lake Rabun Living History Centennial DVD
To celebrate Lake Rabun’s 100th birthday, the Living History Committee conducted 40 interviews with longtime residents about lake living in days gone by. There are two one hour sections on this fascinating DVD. The first section features lake residents reminiscing, music playing, historical photographs and even some old home movies recording aquaplaning, water skiing and hilarious water antics as well as narratives by long time lake lovers. Additionally, there is an hour long bonus section with fascinating colorful stories about happenings on the lake. The DVD would make an ideal companion piece to the Standard Edition Centennial Book costing $85.00. The cost of the DVD is $20.00.
