Lake Gregory History
The area, originally known as Houston Flat, was developed by and named for its developer, Redlands citrus grower Arthur Gregory, Sr. Gregory bought and developed land in an area known today as Valley of the Moon. He erected a sawmill at Valley of the Moon to cut wood for crating his \"Orange Blossom\" brand of citrus fruit. Gregory was also instrumental in creating the Crest Forest County Water District, which in turn was necessary to acquire federal aid in order to develop the area. Although the lake is in Crestline proper, Crestline is not a part of the Crest Forest District but rather the Crestline Water District which in turn purchases water from CFCWD.
Work began in 1937 under a 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.
Heavy rains that March put the dam to its first real test. It had been estimated that it would take three years to fill the lake. So heavy were the rains that the lake filled in only three days. An unconfirmed but plausible urban legend claims that the construction equipment from 1938 which had been left on the lake bed during the rains remains at the bottom of the lake today.
A road built over the dam (present-day Lake Drive) completed the project in January 1939.
Today, the Lake Gregory Recreational Park with swimming and water slides is at the west end of the lake and a walking trail now circles the entire lake. The south shore of the lake is a popular fishing destination; the regional park is the site of Crestline\'s Independence Day celebration.
The southeast shore is the site of the private beach and Tyrolean-styled clubhouse of the San Moritz Lodge, once known as Club San Moritz. The original club was built in the Valley of the Moon in 1926 along the shore of now-drained Moon Lake, today the site of the Arrowhead Community Church. A fire of suspicious origin destroyed the building in 1950 and the lake was drained in the early 1960s over increasing problems with mosquitoes. The new club, built along Lake Gregory in 1950, was intended to be a members-only resort and club for property owners in the area. Today, the only buildings which remain are the restaurant building used as the site of special events such as weddings and a bathhouse now used as a senior center.
Private vessels and power boats are not allowed on Lake Gregory, although rowboats, paddle boards, pedal-powered \"water trikes\" and pedalos are available for rental. The rowboats may be affixed with the renter\'s own electric trolling motor.
