Anyone who enjoys Grand Lake might be surprised to know how the lake came to be.

The Pensacola Dam makes Grand Lake possible.

It was built in 1940 near Langley.

It created Grand Lake, but also the state's first hydroelectric power plant.

Channel 8's Jack Fain found out it took thousands of men and lots of back-breaking work.
