This post is part of a series that began with this entry.

Immediately north of Ben Burton Park and beside the Middle Oconee River, in Athens-Clarke County, Georgia, exists evidence that brick structures were part of the old Tallassee Shoals Hydroelectric Facility.  On the approach to the tower, where the 1895 dam used to be, is a trail.  Beside that trail, in the woods, are stone walls.  Between two stone walls are broken-up parts of a brick structure, now partially overgrown.

I wonder what this area looked like prior to 1960, when the hydroelectric facility closed.
