historyThe Lake Wylie dam in Fort Mill was built in 1904 to impound the Catawba River and form Lake Catawba. The lake was used by the Catawba Power Company to produce hydro-electric power. The Catawba Power Company became the Southern Power Company in 1905, which later merged with Duke Power Company. In 1924 the lake was expanded and the dam rebuilt. The lake was renamed in 1960 for Dr. W. Gill Wylie, founder of the Catawba Power Company. Duke Power Company manages Lake Wylie and its dam today.
