About Glenville Lake
Lake Glenville, also known as Thorpe Reservoir, covers 1,470 acres, has a 26-mile coastline and is located in the mountains of North Carolina, United States of America, north of Charlotte. Glenley Lake, known for its scenic views of the Atlantic Ocean and Great Smoky Mountains National Park, covers 1,470 hectares and has 26 miles of coastline.
Glenville Lake was created when the war effort of World War II increased demand for aluminum and the Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA) needed more energy in the region to meet that demand. The valley was home to the city of Glenville, which consisted of houses, shops, schools, a cemetery and a church. These structures were removed and moved after the farm valley was flooded to a depth of 300 feet. It all started with the Nantahala Power and Light Company, which was then owned by A LCOA and bought by Duke Power in 1988.
The lake was originally named after the flooded town of Lake Glenville, but the inhabitants renamed the area "Glenville" and it was renamed Thorpe Reservoir. The name of the lake soon changed to Lake Glennville, at the request of some members of the community.
Although the dam is still known as Thorpe Dam, it has since taken the name Glenville Dam. The dam has a saddle dam and is one of the largest dams in North Carolina and the second largest in the United States.

Duke Energy lowers lake levels by an average of 10 feet per year to provide storage for the runoff from heavy spring rains and protect lives and property downstream.
