Goat Rock Dam and Power House

Goat Rock Dam and Power House
Taken: 7/3/2010
The dam was built in 1910-1911 and apparently got its name when construction
workers claimed to see goats jumping onto the rocks in the river. I found the following
vintage postcard of the dam taken from the Georgia side of the river.

Doesn't look like it has changed much. I like the looks of the power house, though I'm not sure why. Thanks for answering my question before I asked. I was wondering about the name. :)

I like the old industrial architecture and your HDR just enhances this 'I like' feeling!

Love that name, Goat Rock Dam. I can just see goats jumping about on the rocks. Cool photo!
