The US Corps of Engineers broke a long-standing tradition in naming the Summersville Dam. Tradition holds that the project will be named after the town nearest the site of construction, unless named for a person. However, the town of Summersville was not the one nearest the dam. The village of Gad was literally flooded at the opening of the reservoir. After briefly considering the name "Gad Dam," it was instead decided to name the project after the next nearest town – Summersville.
