"Lake Fryer, originally known as Wolf Creek Lake, was formed by the construction of an earthen dam on Wolf Creek in eastern Ochiltree County. The dam was completed by the late summer of 1940. During the next few years Wolf Creek Lake was used primarily for soil conservation, flood control, and recreation. In 1947 a flash flood washed away the dam, but during the 1950s congressman Walter Rogers secured a deed to the county from the federal government in order to rebuild. After a bond election to obtain local funds, the dam was rebuilt in 1957, with M. J. Wolfrum as project engineer. The reservoir was named Lake Fryer after James T. Fryer, an area pioneer rancher. During the 1980s the lake and the surrounding park were owned and operated by Ochiltree County and included a Girl Scout camp and other recreational facilities. Abundant evidence of occupation by prehistoric people near Lake Fryer has been unearthed in a buried Pueblo city." - LAKE FRYER," Handbook of Texas Online (http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online/articles/rolaj), accessed June 03, 2014.
