Feeder Dam 4

Mile 84.40 - This dam actually works.  You can see on the West Virginia side a little building which houses a still-working electric generator.  The current dam was built in 1906 (previous versions had suffered from flooding)

Aerial view.

Dam 4 Winch House

Although the gate is now missing, this winch house was used to raise and lower a gate for protection against floods. The gate fit across the canal directly beneath the winch house.
