Near Huntington County, Ind., four cities lay at the bottom of the Salamonie Reservoir after they were evacuated then flooded during the reservoir's creation in 1967.
Now, more than half of a century later, a town called Monument City has re-emerged as a result of the severe drought that has been plaguing the area and much of the Midwest.
The evaporating water has allowed reservoir visitors to find old doorknobs, coins and the building blocks of an old school house.
Even human bones were among the items to float ashore.
When the cities were flooded to create the reservoir, a few cemeteries existed in the path of the plans, requiring graves to be relocated.
Some unmarked graves existed, however, and their contents have since surfaced, much to the surprise of area fisherman.
But this occurrence isn't as rare as you might think, Department of Natural Resources Spokesman Phil Boom said.
"There has been a lot of misinformation about this site regarding it being the first time," Bloom said. "It's available to be seen every winter, but it's rare during the summertime."
Since word has spread about the town's visibility, the reservoir has hosted two guided tours.
One tour drew in a crowd of over 850 people, around 10 times the amount of people in Monument County at its peak, Bloom said.
The former 15-acre town got its name from the monument that was erected to honor 27 local men that died during the civil war.
Though the drought has provided a unique opportunity for visitors, safety is paramount.
The reservoir's cavernous bottom may be a haven for fish, but boaters should exercise caution when passing through. With such low waters, the remaining foundations of the underwater towns are closer to the surface than usual.
