The long anticipated Centennial History of Lake Rabun is being printed in anticipation of a 2015 Labor Day delivery. The 280 page book is a literal feast for the eyes and contains a complete 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 led by Barbara Roper & Mary Cobb Stone, and the thorough courthouse and historical society research of Anne Pledger and others. There are a wide variety of historical photos - most of which have been graciously donated by our community, and then scanned and catalogued by Helen McSwain. Along with them are a beautiful collection of current photography showcasing the lake community today, much of it also from our membership.
Interspersed with the most complete history of the lake yet attempted, are numerous memorable stories from our own members highlighting eras and points of reference that are uniquely Lakemont. This 11" x 14" coffee table book is one to cherish and to pass down to future generations.
We will publish only 2500 books in our first run, 2000 of which will be jacketed in a handsome photo quality paper cover and will cost $85.00. We are also offering a limited edition run of 500 special leather bound and jacketed copies, each of which will also contain our Living History DVD and be autographed by the Authors. It will cost $140.00
The caliber of this book is equal or exceeds the high quality architectural books many of you are familiar with. A sample of the book showing representative pages is attached to this link. 100% of the net profits from this book will go directly to the Lake Rabun Foundation.
So click here to place your order! And, remember your family, and future family and friends, who would love a special and unique keepsake of Lakemont. Use it for Christmas and business gifts as well. It will be an investment well worth making and benefit the surrounding community which we have enjoyed for so many years.
The DVD contains an hour long feature section complete with music, historical photographs, moving pictures and narratives by long time lake lovers. Additionally, there is an hour long bonus section with fascinating stories of life on the lake. The DVD would make an ideal companion piece to the Centennial Book costing $85.00.
The cost of the DVD is $20.00 with all of the net profit going to the foundation. The DVDs make great stocking stuffers and hostess gifts. All your friends who have visited the lake through the years would love a copy.

Memorial Day LRA Meeting May 24, 2015
