This year marks the 50th anniversary of the dedication of the Greers Ferry Dam by President John F. Kennedy. The dam marked the birth of our beautiful Greers Ferry Lake – the natural centerpiece of Van Buren county. Thousands of attendees joined the celebration at the JFK Overlook in Heber Springs, with music by the 106th Army Band and guest speakers commemorating the event, including Governor Mike Beebe & former president Bill Clinton.
