Off Route 219 going south just after Springville, there's a sign to "Scoby Dam". What in the world is Scoby Dam?
Disused Scoby Dam now. It was built in the 1920s and is no longer needed to provide electricity.
So now it's a park, the evening sun shining on the tree trunks..
And a closer look. Not quite Niagara Falls but still...
The house is boarded up with signs of a garden long gone.
Nature's taken over the old works.
As always around here, she doesn't need much bidding.
The placid Cattaraugus Creek above.
....must be a great place for fishing. Wild flowers abound.
With diversions on the way.
An almost perfect picnic spot.
And not a bad sunset.
