Found along the Pine River are the ruins of the old powerhouse of the Dufferin Light and Power Company. Nearby is an old flume which brought water from a dam, which, when constructed in 1909, was the longest of its kind in Ontario.
The plant supplied power to Shelburne, Horning's Mills and part of Orangeville. The creation of Ontario Hydro, however, put many of Ontario's private power plants out of business, and by 1927 hydro power was no longer being generated here.
Only a shell of the former power station, but a great place to explore if you can get across the river.
