The Cheney Reservoir Photograph Collection provides a pictorial narrative of the construction of Cheney Reservoir.  The photographs include the ground breaking ceremony on May 29, 1962, and the dedication on May 29, 1965.  Located 30 miles west of Wichita on the Ninnescah River, Cheney Reservoir was an Army Corps of Engineers project built in part to supply the city of Wichita with a long-term water supply.
