372 A BICENTENNIAL HISTORY OF MISSISSIPPI GRENADA LAKE Grenada Lake, located in Grenada, is one of the four lakes in North Mississippi that is operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Grenada Lake project consists of over 90,000 acres where visitors can go hiking, boating, fishing, hunting, skiing, bird watching, camping, picnicking, golfing, and swimming. An overlook is available for visitors to get a panoramic view of the 36,000 acre lake. The Grenada Dam was part of the Yazoo Headwater Project, which was a result of the Flood of 1927. The dam was completed in 1954 and stands eighty feet above the streambed and is 13,900 feet long.

This particular house was built for two African American women who farmed the surrounding land.
