Historical Note
 
The Lake of the Ozarks is a large man-made reservoir created by impounding the Osage River in central Missouri in the northern part of the Ozarks. The lake was created by the construction of the 2,543-foot long Bagnell Dam by Union Electric Company of St. Louis, Missouri. Construction began August 6, 1929, and was completed in April 1931. The principal engineering firm was Stone and Webster.
