Roanoke River Long before Lake Gaston was created, the Roanoke River shaped the lives of its inhabitants. It was called Moratoc, which means River of Death, by Native Americans and early settlers, and its spring torrents claimed many lives. In exchange, it deposited layers of rich sediment onto a bountiful floodplain. The Tuscarora were the first inhabitants of the area. They caught fish and lived in their homes along the river. Settlers arrived here in the 1700s. These fishermen, trappers, and farmers sought ways to transport their goods along the treacherous Roanoke River. In 1815, work began on the Roanoke Canal that allowed people to more safely travel the 400-mile waterway all the way to the coast. Corn was the main crop grown in the fertile soil. In the 1930s, the Works Progress Administration brought cattle from the Midwest to the Roanoke Valley. Several ferries crossed the Roanoke River, but the two most traveled were Robinson Ferry and Eaton’s Ferry. Eaton’s operated until 1962 when Eaton’s Ferry Bridge was completed across Lake Gaston. Lake and dam In the early 1920s, Virginia Electric and Power Company, recognizing the tremendous promise of the Roanoke River area, decided to build a dam to generate electricity. About 40 years later, after overcoming considerable obstacles, Lake Gaston Dam was dedicated on June 26, 1963. The 3,600-foot-long dam, rising 105 feet above the riverbed at its highest elevation, is constructed of compacted earth and rock fill with a concrete powerhouse and spillway.
