Re-enactment of Historic Lake Crossing, 6 to 7 p.m. Monday, July 1, 1799 S. Lakeshore Dr. Free. Once the lake was filled with water, visitors would walk from the train depot down to the lakeshore where they would board a boat to cross the lake to Stuart Auditorium. Join the fun as the lake’s founders, James Atkins and George R. Stuart (Hugh Burford and Lawrence Braxton) and Bishop and Mrs. Lawrence McClesky, relive the lake crossing made by thousands of visitors during Lake Junaluska’s early days.  Participants are encouraged to dress in period costumes. For transportation to and from the event, the Lake Junaluska bus will pick participants up at the tent on the front lawn of the Administration Building.
