Since the 1930s, White Rock Lake has been a popular recreational area for residents of Dallas, Texas. And, for nearly as long, people have reported seeing the ghost of a woman who’d drowned there..
Some believe that she was the victim of a boating accident. Others suggest that she was in a car accident and that her car wound up in the water.
And, there are certainly plenty of accidents to choose from.
But, the Lady of White Rock Lake isn’t the typical Vanishing Hitchhiker. She’ll ask for a ride, yes. But, she’s also appeared on the front porches of houses near the spot where she’d died, ringing the doorbell and asking to use the telephone.
So, what is her story? Who was the woman — or women — who’d become the Lady of White Rock Lake?
