Historic Blair Sheave Tower, Cambridge Ontario

The Sheave Tower, in the village of Blair, was built by Allan Bowman in 1876 to harness water power, via a pulley and cable, for the grist mill across the street.

The Blair Sheave Tower is Ontario’s last remaining wooden water-powered hydro generator tower.
