I don’t see many house boats like this on Lake Martin anymore.
When I was growing up, there were always a bunch of house boats that were moored at docks by the River Bridge. They were on the east side of the river, across from the old Lake Hill Restaurant, on the north side of the Tallapoosa River. I guess this was the late 1970s, early 1980s.
We would be driving eastward on highway 280, and as we’d cross the bridge, we could see them all parked over on a dock system. I never went down there, and don’t know their owners.
When I saw this one parked across the street from my office, it made me think about how long it’s been since I have seen a boat like this on Lake Martin.
