Dam across Prestile Stream, Presque Isle, 1910

Contributed by Presque Isle Historical Society


The dam across the Prestile (Presque Isle) Stream provided meager electricity to residents in the early years of Presque Isle as well as providing a means to bring lumber to the mill located at the sight. Presque Isle founder, Dennis Fairbanks, owned the original mill here and had a wooden bridge built to cross the stream. In 1907, Arthur Gould provided seed money to replace the wooden bridge with a concrete one. The bridge can be seen in the background.
