The building of the lake authorized in 1954 and was originally named Kaysinger Bluff Dam and Reservoir. Construction began in 1964 and was renamed the Harry S. Truman Dam and Reservoir or Truman Lake. Completing the Truman Project took many years of planning, land acquisition, constructing new bridges and demolishing old ones. Several roads, towns, and cemeteries had to be relocated. The creation of the lake forced the closure of the of road and railroad tracks. It was less expensive to leave the in place than to remove them.
