As The Water Rises: Finding the Lost Community of Bowlingtown

A reflective look at the creation, loss, and rebirth of Bowlingtown, Kentucky, a small community nestled in the hills of Eastern Kentucky. Despite having lost their town to flood control projects that would eventually create Buckhorn Lake, the members of this community, and their descendants, have kept the town's sense of community alive for the past 50 years.
