Nice for pictures

The dam area would be pretty for pictures. We walked down the river/creek for a bit following along the edge and going on some paths through the trees. I spoke with a couple of... read more

This is a nice little park near the Courthouse Square. An old hydroelectric plant and the dam are the main features of the park. Which is a visual delight!
