On October 31, 1973 the final hole in the dam was blocked off and the reservoir was officially full on April 12, 1974. The reservoir was stocked with it’s first fish on April 15, 1974. In 1985 the John H. Moss Recreational Facilities were designed by Holland and Hamrick Architects and built honoring the mayor of King’s Mountain, John Henry Moss. The NC Dept of Natural Resources and Community Development gave official recognition to the area and “Moss Lake” was born.
