The History of Fairfield Bay...Taken from A Memorandum of Discussion with Mrs. Ina Owen (1993) Fairfield Bay started as a dream in the mind of a young Dartmouth graduate named Jack Jacobus who with his fellow Air Force Pilot buddy Neal Simonson were in the housing development business in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Jake dreamed of building a resort/retirement community to accommodate the growing number of retirees. His dream foresaw the resort on a body of water, in a quiet wooded area somewhere in North Arkansas. A site was chosen along the shores of a new Greers Ferry Lake that had been formed by the Greers Ferry Dam of the Little Red River. This dam had been built near Heber Springs in 1960 (dedicated by President John F. Kennedy in 1963). This area of lake was the major attraction with its access to fishing and boating sports and the quiet beautiful wooded area near or overlooking the lake. Today Fairfield Bay is home to 2,640 residents and over 20,000 seasonal visitors.
