This photo shows the Santa Fe Dam and its impounded reservoir located south of downtown Williams, Arizona.  Built in 1892 from red sandstone and named after the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway (AT&SF), which stored the reservoir's water for its steam locomotives traveling through Williams.  Today [2020], this reservior provides domestic water to the Town of Williams and is a recreational area noted for its fishing.

Note:  The photo is misidentified as Saw Mill Dam, but this in a mistake.
