Temiscaming Power House

Power for the Town of Temiscaming, QC, was provided by this powerhouse on the banks of the Ottawa River. Water from Gordon Creek was delivered by a large pipe built of wood bound by metal straps. The water’s journey began well above the town, passing through here, spinning the turbines and ending in the Ottawa River.

    Thanks for the historical background. Been at this site many times, photographing it by myself and others. Never knew the background story.
