Lake Granbury is a North Texas reservoir near Granbury, Texas. It was created in 1969 and is one of three lakes damming the Brazos River! Lake Granbury is contained by the De Cordova Bend Dam since late 1950s and is a long, narrow lake controlled by the Brazos River Authority in Granbury!
"According to legend, President Abraham Lincoln’s assassin John Wilkes Booth, and outlaw Jesse James were also both Granbury residents. Although both were declared dead, some say they actually cheated death and lived in Granbury under assumed names. Following his assassination of Lincoln, rumor had it that a Booth look-a-like was actually killed while Booth fled to Granbury where he lived as John St. Helen and worked as an actor and bartender!
Booth—or St. Helen—was said to favor his left leg thanks to an injury that was whispered took place when he leaped from the balcony onto the stage below after shooting the president. Following an illness, he reportedly made what he thought was a deathbed confession, only to escape death once again and, upon recovery, beat a hasty retreat from Granbury for good!
Like Booth, legend says the body of an associate of James was mistaken for the outlaw’s, and James escaped to Granbury where he lived out his life as J. Frank Dalton, only declaring his true identity right before dying (for good, this time) in 1951. An autopsy was conducted and Hood County Sheriff Oran Baker alleged that the man who died in Granbury was the real Jesse James!" 👢🌅
