It's a story with an early 20th century beginning. In the 1920s, an accident occurred at Garland Road and E. Lawther when a car flew off the road and into the lake. The driver, a woman in her 20s, did not survive the incident. Many have speculated that the woman was angry due to an argument at a fancy boat party on White Rock Lake. She then sped off and left in her expensive car, crashing it shortly thereafter in the Lake. No one heard or saw the fatal accident. Today, residents, passer-bys, and drivers have encountered what they call "The Lady of the Lake." She is described as wearing a pearly white 1920s dinner dress and soaking wet due to the accident. Some residents who live on White Rock Lake have been visited by a woman matching that description asking to use a phone. By the time the resident retrieves a phone, the woman is gone and leaves behind a puddle of water on the front porch. Passer-bys have reported seeing a 20 year old woman in a wet, white dress walking along the shoreline of the Lake. Probably the most eerie encounters of the Lake of the Lake have been the accounts by drivers. These drivers reportedly pick up a 20 year old woman in a soaking wet dress hitchhiking. She asks the driver to take her to a residence on Gaston Avenue, a street southeast of the Lake. Upon reaching the destination, the woman has vanished leaving behind a puddle of water and a wet back seat.
