Partnership Works To Save Monte Ne

Posted: December 27, 2012 at 5 a.m.

Joseph Murphey, a historical architect with the Army Corps of Engineers changes the dark slide while taking photographs with a four-by-five large format camera for Library of Congress records Feb. 7 in Monte Ne during a tour of the site.

Monte Ne was a small resort that attracted visitors from across the country during its heyday in the early 1900s. The government eventually purchased the property in 1960 in preparation of the Army Corps of Engineers building Beaver Lake. Impounding the lake covered most of what was left of the resort.

This story is only available from our archives.

I have seen a picture years ago of the lake being down very low and you can see pretty much everything that is now submerged under water. With almost all the historical remains now below the water all we see now is the tower on the shore and a few pillars sticking up out of the water. Alot of people have never seen the rest. It would be nice for the newspaper to publish a picture or a few to show everyone what is below the surface of this historical landmark.
