description

Summary

Significance: Despite substantial erosion, the dam is significant as an example of timber-crib construction, a common 19th-century technology, and as one of the earliest-known dams to have used concrete as a structural material, in this case, the crib fill. It is also important as an integral component of the Winooski Falls Mills District, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
