Interesting factoid: In 1945, the federal government authorized a lake that would tame Denton Creek (which overflowed each spring), provide recreation and supply water to cities. The Grapevine Dam and Reservoir project, as it was originally known, was initiated in January 1948. Located on Denton Creek, a tributary of the Elm Fork of the Trinity river, the project spans both Tarrant County and Denton County. In this area immediately north of the City of Grapevine, the Corps of Engineers obtained approximately 15,700 acres of land and placed easements on another 2,200 acres to be flooded by the new reservoir. The project was completed in June 1952, and impounding of water began July 3, 1952. (Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
