Power House at Stave Falls

Creative, abstract, historic (including architecture) and scenic photography.


This is an authentic 1912 generating station that produced electricity for the Mission and Maple Ridge areas for over 90 years.

In the Generator Hall you can walk alongside (and photograph of course) the original turbines and generators and view the beautiful architectural details. You can play at creating electricity in the "Electrica" Gallery (creative and abstract photo ops). Outside, the penstocks are interesting subjects. There are exhibits and photo murals showing the history of power generation in the area.

Afterwards, we might meet somewhere for lunch.
