Riverfront Park Heritage & Nature Trail

Water flowed from the race to the mill where it originally powered two overshot wheels and later a large Boyden Turbine before flowing back into the river. When water power was unavailable — either because of repairs or low water, the mill had to shut down or use coal to fire up its backup power — a steam engine, which was a much more expensive process.
