Water Power

Water Power until the invention and utilization of the steam engine in the 1800's and before was the major source of power for early American factories. While today most of the remaining water mills are in remote areas and many times in parks, these mills were the work horses of American industry and water was used to grind grain, saw lumber and power textile mills to mention a few. Some of these larger industrial complexes still exist in the northeastern part of the country. More on this subject and pictures will be added in the near future.
