Gregory donated land a mile east of downtown Rogers to the City to build a lake named in honor of his wife Atalanta. In Greek mythology, Atalanta was a beautiful and swift-footed huntress. Lake Atalanta was created in 1936 when the Works Project Administration (WPA) built a high, earthen dam across Prairie Creek. In 1937 the 40-acre lake was stocked with bass and bream and it became a destination for anglers. CHARLES KNUDSEN 15 Nov 1896 - Apr 1973 Rogers, Benton, AR
