Lake Wylie

Lake Wylie is a reservoir created in 1904 when the Catawba Power Company dammed part of the Catawba River to create its hydroelectric power plant. The Catawba Power Company now operates as Duke Power Company, and Lake Wylie is named for Dr. Walker Gill Wylie, Chester native and founder of the Catawba Power Company.

Though currently a South Carolina community, Lake Wylie sits along the North Carolina-South Carolina border, making it vulnerable to a new survey conducted in 1994 that puts in doubt the statehood of several properties. One woman’s home recently was discovered to actually rest in both states.

The survey project has taken nearly two decades of research. Depending on the outcome, in the future we may have to footnote Lake Wylie as a former South Carolina landmark.
