Plainview Lake in 1913

Plainview Lake in 1913

In 1913 a playa lake in Plainview was filled by an irrigation pump with fourteen million gallons of water after 158 hours.  When completed, it was the largest body of water in Texas supplied by a well. It covered thirty acres and had a depth of five to six feet. The lake was a popular recreation spot for residents and visitors to Plainview Texas. In the summer, people could boat, swim and fish and in the winter the frozen lake was a place where visitors could ice skate for as long as you wanted for 25 cents.
