Lake Murray is a lake in the U.S. state of South Carolina. It is approximately 50,000 acres (200 km) in size, and has roughly 500 miles (800 km) of shoreline. It was impounded in the late 1920s to provide hydroelectric power to the state of South Carolina. Lake Murray is fed by the Saluda River, which flows from upstate South Carolina near the North Carolina state line. The Saluda Dam (officially the Dreher Shoals Dam) was an engineering feat at the time of its construction. Lake Murray itself is named after the project's chief engineer, William S. Murray. The dam, utilizing the native red clay soil and bedrock, was the largest earthen dam in the world when it was completed in 1930. The Saluda Dam is approximately 1.5 miles long and 220 feet high. Lake Murray is 41 miles long, and 14 miles wide at its widest point. When the lake was finished, it was the world's largest man-made reservoir. Since its construction, Lake Murray has been the focal point of the region. Many different communities in four counties are all tied to the lake, and the local history has as much to do with the lake as the lake has to do with the local history. Considering Lake Murray now covers an area that was once populated, the story of what lies beneath its surface is the story of Lake Murray itself. More at Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
