Once The Fifth Largest Dam In America, Arkansas’ Bull Shoals Dam Was A True Feat Of Engineering

I am a nature lover and self-proclaimed foodie wrapped in one package. In my previous life, I was an Accountant, but numbers were boring and writing is the only thing that fuels my soul. So, I write because it's my freedom...it brings me joy. When I'm not writing dope articles for OnlyInYourState, I am writing and editing articles for my online blog on Medium.com. Or, when I get the chance, I am off on a trip with my family chasing waterfalls, or simply exploring the great outdoors. My mantra is to always find the best part of every day and bask in it.
Just like beavers build dams to protect themselves, humans need to do the same. And in Arkansas, we have built a few dams over the years. But none as incredible as the Bull Shoals Dam, which is a true feat of engineering. It was once the fifth largest dam in America, and the story behind the construction is quite impressive.
