"Lake Gregory is an artificial lake in the San Bernardino National Forest of the San Bernardino Mountains in San Bernardino County, California. The lake and the surrounding area make up the Lake Gregory Regional Park adjacent to Crestline, California…
Work began in 1937 under a Works Progress Administration (WPA) grant to dam the east and west forks of Houston Creek, whose floodwaters drained into [tributaries] of the [Mojave River], thereby going to waste. The project was nearly completed by March 1938, but federal funds had run out. Gregory himself financed the completion of the project, loaning money to the district for the completion. The eventual cost was US$225,000, US$160,000 of which came from the federal government with the balance funded by the water district."
