Notes
Survey number HAER OH-121
Significance: It is significant for its historical associations with the CCC in the U.S. Forest Service's development of Wayne National Forest. It is an important reminder of the early 20th century development of parks and national forests as resources for public recreation. The dam was also constructed by enrollees of the CCC, an important New Deal program that combatted unemployment while providing labor for conservation and facilities improvement projects in national forests and other locations.
