The dam was destroyed in 1900 after a flood on the Colorado River.
Construction started in 1915 on rebuilding the dam after the flood, but was halted after a dispute between the City of Austin and the contractor for the project. The Tom Miller Dam was completed in 1939 and renamed in honor of one of Austin's mayors.
The dam was destroyed, in part, due to a flood, but the main cause was sediment built up over time at the base of the dam dislodged the structure. In 1900, the dam broke and flooded the city.
