Notes
Survey number HAER MI-49
Significance: The reinforced concrete, multiple-arch buttressed dam was never a very common type in the United States, and it was particularly uncommon in the eastern half of the country. Very few dams of this type were built after 1930. Victoria Dam was the best, largest example of the multiple-arch dam in Michigan.
