Overview

In 1909, Dallas city leaders approved the damming of White Rock Creek to create a new water source for the increasing needs of a growing city. As a result, so much of the life and history of Dallas has echoed through the life and history of White Rock Lake. In the early decades, the lake was home to many private summer homes and boat houses, as well as hunting and fishing clubs. Soon thereafter, a bathing beach, sailing clubs, public boathouses, and picnic facilities were added. The Civilian Conservation Corps and the Works Progress Administration transformed the lake with more recreational and leisure amenities. World War II brought increased military uses that included a POW camp for German officers. Those early city leaders could hardly know that the lake they were creating 10 miles outside of Dallas would become an urban oasis enjoyed by over two million visitors a year.

    Snowy to Tearkit

    "Ok. She isnt a cat herself but she is an expert with animals. The house is page four result six. The title is the last rock and roll show. The one who will take care of you is Fluttershy. She is a yellow pegasus with a long mane and tail. She has turquise eyes and a picture of three pink butterflies on her flank. Just dont hunt the animals over there."
