Artist's Description

In 1916, under the leadership of Mayor Ed Overholser, citizens voted $1.5 million in bonds – about $26 million in today’s dollars – to build the dam and reservoir at a location that was then eight miles west of town.
The dam is 62 feet high and 1,258 feet long. It was built by the Ambursen Construction Company of New York in a style developed by engineer Niles Ambursen, using concrete buttresses to support a slab of concrete that holds back the water.

Today, Lake Overholser is a ‘backup’ reservoir, tapped during the summer to meet the increased seasonal demand.

The dam was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.
