Published in 1978, this map shows Lake Aldred on the Susquehanna River. Also visible are the Enola Low Grade (which at the time was owned by Penn Central), Pinnacle Overlook, Safe Harbor Dam, Holtwood Dam, and several covered bridges.

Lake Aldred can be found between Safe Harbor and Holtwood Dam.

Lake Aldred takes its name from John E. Aldred, who was instrumental in making the McCalls Ferry Dam (now called Holtwood) a reality. Click here to learn more.
