Most People Have No Idea There’s An Underwater Ghost Town Hiding In Texas

As children, we heard many a tale of the sunken city of Atlantis, and although our naive minds might have believed it then, we’ve written it off as nothing more than folklore in adulthood.

What if I told you that we have our very own Atlantis right here in Texas?

That’s right. Now, it may not be home to a strange underwater species (or any sentient life at all), but the concept is the same and it’s pretty darn neat. The town was called Bluffton, and it got submerged in 1937 when Lake Buchanan was filled – a tragic event for many locals who had to leave behind the precious lives that they spent so long cultivating.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
