Radnor Lake

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

During the six decades that followed, still under ownership of the L&N, Radnor Lake went almost unnoticed by the greater community. Neighbors quietly hiked and biked around the lake and over the hills, enjoying the songbirds and flowers that had found refuge there. And children were certain to find the frozen lake irresistible in winter. But when the area was purchased in 1962 by a construction firm planning a housing development, public sentiment echoed from ridge to ridge.

After several years of grassroots work, creative thinking, fundraising, political action and last-minute heroics by dedicated conservationists and enlightened leaders, 747 acres of land were preserved in 1973 as Radnor Lake-Tennessee's first natural area and protected eco-system.
