Construction of the Georgetown Dam & Lake began in 1972 and was completed in 1979 by the Army Corps of Engineers. The lake & recreational facilities were opened in 1981. Approximately 6 (plus an “unknown”) cemeteries (Bullion, Boultinghouse, Jenkins, Keating, Sawyer, Sedwich[k]) were moved from their original locations as they would have ended up under Lake Georgetown upon the completion of the dam.

The “mapped” coordinates are the approximate original site location for historical purposes.
