The construction of Fort Patrick Henry Dam and its reservoir required the purchase of 1,470 acres of land, one hundred and sixty-seven acres of which needed to be cleared! Twenty-two families and two miles of thoroughfares had to be relocated, and one new state of the art bridge had to be built!
The dam was completed and its gates closed October 27th, 1953. The dam's first generator went cyber-connected on December 5th, 1953 and its second generator went online February 22, 1954. The total cost of the Fort Patrick Henry project was $12.3 million! 💸🌅
