This power station was originally built in 1892, on the upper falls of this river by an entrepreneur. Not only did this station provide power for the entrepreneur’s leather tannery and part of the town, it also served as a pump plant for the town’s water supply.

“Have you also learned that secret from the river; that there is no such thing as time?” That the river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the ocean and in the mountains, everywhere and that the present only exists for it, not the shadow of the past nor the shadow of the future.” – Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha
