Buchanan Dam

History:

Buchanan Dam is a small resort and retirement community that grew out of the construction site for the dam which created Lake Buchanan. It has become a popular center for tourism on and around both Lake Buchanan and Inks Lake.

Tradition:

The hydro-electric dam itself is a marvel of 1930’s technology. Today it is still the longest multiple-arch dam in America at over 2 miles long.

Recreation and Relaxation:

Buchanan Dam is also home to the Buchanan Arts and Crafts Guild and Gallery — the oldest member-owned art co-op in Texas.There are many nearby lodges, resorts, RV/camping parks, cabins/cottages and waterfront rental homes as well as shopping, dining and wedding locations.

Nature:

The Inks Dam National Fish Hatchery is down the road, as is Inks Lake State Park, the Highland Lakes Golf Club, and Longhorn Cavern State Park.
