The Old Powerhouse at Toccoa Falls College

Built in 1899 to provide Hydro-electric power to the surrounding area. A log was built at the headwater of a creek above the powerhouse to provide water flow to make electricity. In 1927 Georgia Power aquired the plant and in 1933 gave it to the Toccoa Falls Institute, later College. It powered the college until 1953 when the school returned it to Georgia Power.
