This vintage, moss-covered stone structure belonged to an early 1900’s hydroelectric dam along the Catawba River, located near Old Fort, North Carolina. Prints available.
Following a hike at Benton Falls, I later found Ocoee Dam No. 2 – a hydroelectric dam along the Ocoee River, in Polk County, Tennessee, built between 1912-1913.
At the adjacent Sugarloaf Mountain Park, I learned that materials to construct this rock-filled crib-type dam had been quarried from a hillside across the river, with structural remnants of a railway bridge still intact.
If you’d be interested in a print of any kind, visit my shop at Pixels.
