Significance: Engineered by the War Department in 1935, Moore Haven Lock was designed for preventive measures during hurricanes, floods, and droughts while allowing navigation on the Okeechobee Intracoastal Waterway, a 155-mile passage connecting the Gulf of Mexico with the Atlantic Coast via Lake Okeechobee. In June 2000, the U.S. Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, proposed to make the structural changes to the Okeechobee Intracoastal Water's historic lock facilities that would substantially alter the lock that were considered National Register of Historic Places eligible historic resources. A Memorandum of Agreement was signed between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District and the Florida State Historic Preservation Office stipulating that the St. Lucie, Moore Haven, and Ortona lock and dams would be documented to Level II Historic American Engineering Record standard.
