Hiram, which was once a part of White County, was the location of this dam on Big Creek in 1927. The hydroelectric dam was built at the base of Hiram Bluff, creating great promise for residents of the area. The excitement was short lived, however, because the dam was carried away by a flood just months after its completion. Hiram is located two miles north of Pangburn and is now in Cleburne County.
