[Lake Mineral Wells]

Description:

Rock Creek in Parker County was dammed up in 1919 to form Lake Mineral Wells, the third lake built as a water-supply for the popular resort town. This photograph appears to be on the east side of the lake where boat docks were located.
The lake has been a popular recreation area from the beginning, and is now part of Mineral Wells State Park.
