Celebration honors Graham’s history

Written by 

The Proctor Revival Organization will once again honor the history of Graham County May 1-31 with “A Time To Remember” celebration.

The celebration will focus on the construction of the Fontana Dam as well as the deep, pioneering roots of Graham County. The event will strongly focus on the people of Graham County, Western North Carolina, and elsewhere who contributed to the success of World War II by their contribution to the construction of the dam and on how this historical event changed the world as well as the culture of our citizens.  

The power generated at Fontana Dam enabled the accelerated production of the nuclear material needed to complete the Atomic Bombs. The communities of Proctor, Judson, Bushnell and Japan were destroyed and 6,000 residents were forced to relocate and re-establish their livelihoods during this difficult time in American history.
