2007 Bus Tour - Rambling the Yadkin River
The group visited the Idols dam and powerhouse that had been damaged by fire. The Wachovia Historical Society paid to have the roof shored up (see the new column in the second picture). The third picture shows the powerhouse and beginning construction of a new talestock. The fourth and fifth pictures show the old turbines that were removed from the tailstock.
