Summerville Dam

In 1966, President Johnson and Lady Bird dedicated the Summerville Dam. From this much benefit came to the State and the lovely Summerville Lake continues to be a natural resource of beauty.

Then the Lake views..

And one of the hiking areas.

Let us conclude with President Johnson’s eloquent remarks at the 1966 Dam dedication, “As we look out at the magnificent new dam and reservoir to our backs, I have renewed hope that still other resources-the power of science and the determination of man-will, along with a little prayer and a good deal of dynamite, empower us to quench the thirst of generations to come.”
