DSC02759 - Plaisance Falls

PLEASE, NO invitations or self promotions, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks.

 

I saw some signs so came here to check it out. I was here at 5:30am so the light was not the best.

 

Plaisance Falls, are located about five kilometres north of the village of Plaisance. An exceptional natural and historic site, for over a century, the falls were the site of a thriving mill town known as North Nation Mills.

 

In its heyday in the late 1800s, North Nation Mills boasted over 300 residents. Most of them worked at the large sawmill that was powered by the raging torrent of the Plaisance Falls. The village that grew up around the mill had a general store (owned by the mill), churches, a schoolhouse, a cheese factory -- all kinds of activity, in fact. But all of that is gone now; and the site is virtually a ghost town.
