Built in 1910 to provide power to the Homestake Mine in Lead and the Sawmill in Spearfish, the plant is a living testament to the industrial spirit of our community pioneers.  Directions:  From Colorado Boulevard, take Highway 14a and turn right at Winterville Road and go 1/4 mile to Canyon Street.  Parking is available at the trail head located on Winterville Road and Canyon Street.  Follow the signs along the nature path for a short 1/4 mile walk to the plant.  This tour is not handicapped accessible and participants will be provided with safety precautions they must follow during the tour.  For more information please call the City's Public Works office at 642-1333.  Additional information is available on the city's website.
