Robert Playfair–AdminPretty sure that’s the dam on Mississippi, just above playfairville.

Robert MilotteMy Father and uncles used to call it Smith’s Dam it’s located just behind Oral Pretty’s house!!

Ken BarrMy parents in law, Neville and Gwen Wall, owned the property that this dam was a part of. It is on the Iron Mine road.
