Just off the shore of Buckingham Reservoir in a pine grove, a dilapidated dam sits forgotten.

Mostly made of dirt and stone, the dam has fallen apart and no longer holds any water behind, simply a swampy area. It was likely used for irrigation before Buckingham Reservoir existed due to the lack of a sluiceway to power anything.

Nearby is a clearing but there’s no sign of any old foundation or anything, but a visible driveway comes up from the Old Coop Road to it.
