Hebron Dam

Daily Image - 30 January 2012 - Hebron Dam

The Hebron dam was built to power the HH Crosby Shoe Company factory, a large facility that could produce shoes at a rate of a thousand pairs a day. The factory was destroyed by fire in 1946. The land was donated to the Municipality for the District of Yarmouth in order to preserve the dam and its history. Today it is a beautiful reminder of times past.
