Further, the canyons in the upper Lake Buchanan and Colorado River area draw about 15 pair of bald eagles and two pair of golden eagles during the winter.

Buchanan Dam HISTORY: Handbook Of Texas Online: "It was initially the site of a construction camp established to build the first of the major flood-control and power-generation facilities on the Colorado River. The project was originally known as Bluffton Dam for the nearby town of Bluffton, but the name was changed to Hamilton Dam, perhaps because its location had been surveyed in 1926 by an engineer named Hamilton. Some say it was named after G. W. Hamilton, vice president of the Middle West Utility Company of Chicago, a company that represented the Insul interests active in developing electrical power distribution in Texas. The Emery-Peck and Rockwood Development Company undertook the construction of the dam in 1931 and established a post office and a settlement of several hundred workers supported by commercial, medical, and recreational facilities. In 1932 bankruptcy forced the closing of the project. United States Congressman James Paul Buchanan secured federal funds to revive the project in 1934, whereupon the dam, post office, and town were renamed in his honor. The dam was dedicated on October 16, 1937. The town grew steadily as a recreational center, reaching a population of over 1,000 in 1974, when it had numerous businesses. In 1990 the population was 1,099, and in 2000 it had grown to 1,688."

The filling of the lake forced Bluffton to relocate 5 mi west. The abandoned community then was under water. A drought in 2011 caused the lake's water level to drop significantly, exposing the remains of the original town of Bluffton. Buchanan Dam

PRIOR CITY NAMES: Bluffton Dam, then Hamilton Dam

NOTES:
  • Because of postal/mail addressing, The East side of the lake mostly carries Burnet mailing addresses. Also look at listings on our Burnet page.

  • Because there is not a central "city" area in the overall surrounds of Lake Buchanan, we have designated at the end of each listing the location of the listing organization relative to the center of Lake Buchanan; and as "Inks" in the area around Inks Lake. Example: "Loc: SE" means located in the south-east section of the land bordering the Lake Buchanan.

  • Tow and Bluffton are separately profiled in the NW section of the Lake Buchanan area.
