It is a man made lake, used to be the only source of drinking water for the city of Richmond. Pump house and all(gone now) were down along the road. You could rent row boats and I think a caretaker lived in a house where the boat ramp area is now. The spillway was the rocks that were at the far end of the dam next to were the concrete spillway is now..

The updated version you see now, was done around 1985-86.
