Steep Hill Falls Hydro Dam:
Off hwy 17 north of Wawa is this abandoned hydro dam.
Construction began in 1911 and it took 2 years to complete, but it was abandoned in 1927.

This location was used in the 1977 Canadian horror film "Rituals". At 1:18 into this clip you can see a horrific murder take place at this very dam (Youtube removed the video)

Thanks Robert!! hehe..
There was a huge forest fire here that wiped out all the trees for miles around as evidenced in the film..I am amazed at how little the abandoned dam has changed since 1977...
