Beaver Dam was built during the 1960s flooding the White River to create Beaver Lake. The lake and dam provide flood control, fresh water, and hydro-electric power for the entire region.
At the time the dam was built there were not many people in this part of the state. Since then, NW Arkansas has grown to nearly 1/2 million people and quietly become an economic powerhouse. Well know companies like Walmart, Tyson Foods, JB Hunt Transport were founded and still headquartered here.
Scenes along its 500 miles of shoreline provide local flavor for those who happily live here and love its natural flavor.
