Eagle Nest Dam

Construction of the dam began in 1916, continued until 1918, and was considered the largest privately built dam in the United States. The dam was constructed by laborers from the nearby Taos Pueblo, contains no reinforcing steel, and sits between two granite walls. The resulting lake is known as Eagle Nest Lake.
