One of my middle school teachers lived in Van Buren. His name is duane hume. He is 51 years old now. i just graduated HS this year. When I was in 8th grade, my history teacher MR McClain talked with me about Van Buren. He told me he didn't want the lake to come in. He was heartbroken as well about it. He didn't live there but he was emotionally affected by it. here is an article from the spencer magnet. It is titled "views of van buren before taylorsville lake". Ardis Walters took these photos in 1975. Enjoy the pictures.

That's a bittersweet bit of history.
