Tuscaloosa is the central location in the western part of Alabama when it comes to industry, commerce, healthcare, and education. While Tuscaloosa is only the fifth largest city in Alabama, most of the growth results from being the home of the University of Alabama.

In '70, Tuscaloosa formed Lake Tuscaloosa by damming up part of the North River. This created a new 5,855 acre reservoir that replaced the existing two reservoirs as the primary source to meet the water demands of the region.

The lake is larger than both of the previous reservoirs, Lake Nicol and Harris Lake. Lake Nicol is now used as a dedicated backup water supply while Harris Lake is dedicated for industrial use. Lake Tuscaloosa's water is treated for human consumption.

Since the completion of the reservoir, Lake Tuscaloosa has become a recreational haven for activities such as boating, fishing, water skiing, jet skiing and swimming. With all this booming recreational activity came the desire for residents to build lakefront homes.

There are 177 miles of shoreline that meanders around Lake Tuscaloosa. Black Water River Basin has become a hot spot for fishermen. The lake has many species of fish including Alabama spotted bass, largemouth bass, bluegill, redear sunfish, and white crappie.

The popularity of the lake has led to the development of a private community called Legacy Point. The community is 55 acres in size and offers homes with stone and cedar shake exteriors in 6 different 3 and 4 bedroom layouts. The homes have large porches and decks that make for great areas to relax and look out over the water. Homes are from 1,800 to 3,600 sq ft in size.

Final thoughts

Legacy Point has 55 home sites available with a one year build restriction. All properties have a boat slip in the community marina. Public boat ramps are also available for loading and unloading your watercraft.
