“Check out Lake Purfidy as Johnny Cash calls it. Its held back by the Kinzua Dam. A whole community was uprooted and forced to leave there home when they created the dam. The village of Kinzua can still be found on the bottom of the reservoir if you scuba dive feel free to take pictures for me. There are many places to visit within a close distance to the dam. ”
