From the plaque: "On August 6, 1918, this dumping scow broke loose from its towing tug about 1.6 kilometres (1 mile) upriver, with Gustav F. Lofberg and James N. Harris aboard. The men opened the bottom dumping doors and the scow grounded in the shallow rapids. They were rescued the next day by breeches buoy, on a line shot out from the roof of the adjacent powerhouse."

maxman Not far is the Sunbeam III, a yacht that was leased to the US Navy in World War I. It was returned to its owner after the war. In 1922, it ran aground on the Niagara River and broke up completely by 1938. The engine and power train is still visible in winter when they draw the most for power generation.
