Flashback: How rolling acres of land became Lake Lanier, metro Atlanta’s largest source of drinking water

Editor’s Note: Why I owe Elvis for my new job

My first assignment for Atlanta magazine was about throwing a houseboat party on Lake Lanier. Back then I’d never been on a houseboat, let alone Lake Lanier. And the story was due in February, when no one’s out cruising. But I would’ve accepted almost any job to get a byline in Atlanta.

Thoughts of Home: The Lake Lanier I once knew

When my grandparents and great-grandparents built the lake house in 1979, there were no grocery stores for miles—and only a single tiny restaurant. But in the early 1990s, a Kroger opened. Then a pizza delivery place. And in 1996, the North Georgia Premium Outlets. What greater sign of impending civilization is there than a mall?
