Spurrier - This was about as far up stream as a shallow draft boat could
travel on the Obey River. Here, East Fork and West Fork met in a narrow
river bottom. Logging was what gave this site its name. Eventually the
Spurrier family shut down the operation and Dale Hollow Lake covered the
site. There were several oil wells between Spurrier and what is now Obey
River Park. The Army Corps of Engineers just plugged up the wells when Dale
Hollow Lake was built. A few are starting to leak from time to time.
