Hey slaid, I live around 30 miles southeast of louisville kentucky in spencer county. Just 15 miles from where I live, there was once a town called Van Buren. It is now buried under taylorsville lake. It was flooded in the early 80's. Van buren was in anderson county. It was right by Crooked creek and in front of the Salt River. Crooked creek is the spencer-anderson line. I have pics of Van Buren before the lake buried it.

Indeed, I believe there are several hundred little towns beneath lakes in the US. I'm surprised to hear Van Buren was flooded as recently as the 1980s.
