Proctor, North Carolina
Proctor is a former town located in Swain County, North Carolina, U.S.A. It was on Hazel Creek. It is named after Moses Proctor, first white settler to this area. The town was flooded by Fontana Lake, which was created by the construction of the Fontana Dam, and remains submerged unless lake levels are very low.
While the Proctor mine offices were flooded, much of the town and cemetery are above the water line. The site can be accessed by boat charter from the Fontana Marina. There is one home left and remains of the lumber mill.
