Greer’s Ferry Lake is the jewel of Cleburne County, AR. It totals about 40,500 acres with a combined shoreline of just over 340 miles! In the 1800s there was once a city under this lake. The farmers had constant trouble with flooding. The land was purchased, residents left, and the city was abandoned. The cemeteries were moved, and the area was allowed to flood. The town has since been re-established on a nearby hill. Many nearby residents tell that homes and buildings still stand under the water to this day. Several roads in town can be followed to the shore where they disappear under the water, and surface on the opposite side of the lake. Most of these roads are now used as launch ramps for boats. It’s an interesting history to such a beautiful and pristine sight. Residents of Cleburne County enjoy its beauty and activities year round. Its famous fishing and ideal layout for a variety of water sports attracts tourists from across the country.
