The Sheave Tower is in the small historic village of Blair Ontario. Canada

Built by Allan Bowman in 1876, the Sheave Tower, 31 feet tall, was considered to be the oldest hydro-generating system in Ontario. The board-and-batten structure with pointed gothic windows is located in a stand of cedar, bass and maple trees on Old Mill Road outside the Village of Blair, Ontario.

The old mill across the road is still in operation to this day, and Blair Creek rushes by the restored but silent Sheave Tower on its way to the nearby Grand River.
