In 1808, the MacLure’s dam was built to provide waterpower for the gristmill and sawmill. Some buildings are still standing around the dam. Today there is still a depression in the ground, which stretches right to the shore. This is where a shipyard was located which built the MacLure's vessels before the turn of the century.

The falls were at MacClure’s Dam and formed a popular tourist attraction. In 2012, however, the falls fell victim to a watercourse improvement project, which included installation of a fish ladder, and a new bridge.
