East Allen Lake is a shallow, windblown lake on the prairie near the town of Medicine Bow. While the population of the town is around 300, Medicine Bow was the setting of Owen Wister's book, The Virginian, and the home of the Historic Virginian Hotel. The T.V. show, "The Virginian" was introduced in the 1962-63 season, and was based on Wister's book.
