Manufacturing Canal

Unknown

I belive this is a picture from West Milford. Thanks to Chuck Worcester for the following information on this picture: This is taken "Pine Valley" near Hillsborough Mills. The bridge shown spans the "canal" which ran from the Dam to the mill and exited back into the river at the bend in the river at the North East end of the mill. The Canal is still there (yr.2006) and still moves water from the dam through the mill and back to the river. Today the canal water runs through a huge culvert/pipe that is buried in the old canal bed. At last count it was used to power a hydro electrical plant located at the mill site. Two of the houses shown in the background still exist at the corner of Maple and North River Rd
