White Rock Lake is home to Dallas’s most famous Ghost, the lady of the Lake. The Lady of White Rock Lake is a ghostly figure that wanders the park and the surrounding areas. It seems like every Dallas native has heard at least one version of the story around this spirit, with many different accounts on record, the very first dating back to 1943 by a woman named Anne Clark. She wrote about a paranormal encounter a young couple had one particular night in July in the Texas Folklore Society publication, Backwoods to Border. It read:
One hot July night a young city couple, having driven out and parked on the shore of White Rock Lake, switched on the headlights of the car and saw a white figure approaching. As the figure came straight to the driver’s window, they saw it was a young girl dressed in a sheer white dress that was dripping wet. She spoke in a somewhat faltering voice.
I’m sorry to intrude, and I would not under any other circumstances, but I must find a way home immediately. I was in a boat that overturned. The others are safe. But I must get home.
She climbed into the rumble seat, saying that she did not wish to get the young lady wet, and gave them an address in Oak Cliff, on the opposite side of Dallas. The young couple felt an uneasiness concerning their strange passenger, and as they neared the destination the girl, to avoid hunting the address, turned to the rumble seat to ask directions. The rumble seat was empty, but still wet.
After a brief, futile search for the girl in white, the couple went to the address she had given and were met at the door by a man whose face showed lines of worry. When he had heard the couple’s story, the man replied in a troubled voice. “This is a very strange thing. You are the third couple who has come to me with this story. Three weeks ago, while sailing on White Rock Lake, my daughter was drowned.”
Many people have claimed to see her and many have given her the fateful ride. White Rock Lake has also been the site of numerous murders and dozens of body dumps.
