Mary Lake was created in 1861 as a reservoir for the 40-mile-long plus Clear Creek Ditch. It was first known as Falkes Lake and named for goldminer August Falkes who operated a store in the area. The lake was sold to St. Joseph Catholic Church in 1930 who renamed it for the Virgin Mary. In 1982 it was given to the City of Redding by developers.
