White Rock Lake is in Dallas, TX. It is home to an abundance of trees and wild life. People gather everyday to take in the sights and walk around the path of the lake. Inside this seemingly picturesque landscape a legend exists; one that dates back to the early 1900’s. This legend is known as the Lady of White Rock Lake.
White Rock Lake is said to be haunted by a ghost that takes on the appearance of a twenty year old girl. She is described to be soaking wet while wearing a dress that appears to be made sometime in the 1930’s. The woman is a white lady whom also wears the color white for her dress. Witnesses of this spirit, have said that the Lady will appear at night walking down East Lawther Drive. When approached, she will then ask for a ride to her home that is on Gaston Avenue in Dallas, TX. During the ride the passenger will disappear only leaving a trail of water soaking whichever seat she was sitting on.
First reports of this phantom began to be published back as early as 1943. Reports and videos have since been posted numerous times about encountering the strange figure that resemble the Lady at White Rock Lake. No conclusive evidence has been gathered confirming that this spirit truly does exist. The legend does however go on to say that in the first accounts of this story, the people that would drive to the address given to them by the girl would then find a man at the house who said that his daughter has drowned and that they are not the first people to come up there with the same story.
The twenty something year old girl comes from the part in the legend where a young girl was killed during a boating accident at White Rock Lake. The ghost is supposedly her just trying to get back home. The name of this girl is unknown, but the story that follows her is told the same way by many different people. Is this just an urban legend? We plan to investigate this a little to see if we can find any more evidence for this infamous Ghost of White Rock Lake.
