UPDATE:
I have lived, about 15 miles from the Kinzua dam all my life and with historical significance pertaining to the town of Kinzua, if the area has a dry summer and the reservoir is low the town of parts of the town can still be seen and they even have tours of it. It’s pretty neat to see, my friends dad lived there as a kid and teenager and we went with him on a tour and he could tell us how far we were from his house and where this or that road would take you.

The Village of Kinzua a Seneca village was displaced by the building of Kinzua dam and Allegheny Reservoir around 1960, The village burial ground had to be dug up and moved during the construction of the dam. The people of this community watched as their ancestors, their parents, their sisters, their brothers, their children, and the old ones were being hauled out the ground as the graves were dug up and transplant into the new burial ground up in New York.
