The word “Keowee” is roughly translated to a Cherokee name meaning “the place of the mulberries.” Before Europeans settled in North America, Cherokee Native Americans lived in the area and called the settlement “Keowee Town,” which was located along what they called the Keowee River. In 1753, settlers built Fort Prince George across the river, and the Indian Removal Act of 1830 forced the Cherokee out of the region.
In 1963, the South Carolina Land & Timber firm began purchasing land along the river in order to acquire, hold, and develop land and timber properties. Duke Power Company then purchased 83,400 acres from the Singer Corporation and various private landowners. In the mid-1960s, Duke began making plans to supply the southeastern US with greater electricity through a reservoir project. In 1965, Duke Energy announced plans to begin the Keowee-Toxaway project, which would cost an estimated $700 million. As construction began, archaeologists from the University of South Carolina discovered thousands of artifacts, including pottery and human and animal remains, during the excavation of the Cherokee settlement. The demolition and building project took several years to complete, and the initial transfer of water and commercial operation began in December 1973.
