Lake Buchanan was artificially created upon completion of the adjacent Buchanan dam in 1938. Named after Texas State Representative James P. Buchanan.
Interesting factoid: Lake Buchanan is the second largest of the Highland Lakes in Central Texas with a length of 30 miles and a width at the widest point of just under 5 miles and a shoreline of 124 miles. It is named for Representative James P. Buchanan (1867-1937), who is credited with securing the funding to build the lake and dam. When it was built, 1938, Buchanan Dam was considered to be the longest multiple-arch dam in the U.S. with a length of just over two miles.
(Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
