Sluice

Part of the canal system at the Collins Company (axe factory).

Although the axe factory has been closed for many years,there are several small businesses that are operating in the old buildings on the property.  The canals are no longer used for hydropower purposes.

That looks so pretty and tranquil.

Is the axe factory still in business and did it use the power of the water to make energy in the factory?
Amazing technology way back then!
