This is the former site of a dam, a grindstone and an electrical power plant, locally known as "Stanley's Mill." It was also used as a log sluiceway and popular recreation area. First used on December 26, 1877, the electrical plant furnished power for the city of Bloomer.

The entire site was destroyed by a major flood of the O'Neil Creek on April 3, 1934.
