The Stone Arch Dam

Welcome to the Atlas Obscura Community discussion of The Stone Arch Dam in Ontario. Ask questions or share travel tips, experiences, pictures, or general comments with the community. For the story behind this place, check out the Atlas Obscura entry:

The Jones Falls dam owes its strength and durability to the fact that it was constructed with the stonework running in vertical courses; a masonry wall standing on end so to speak. Apart from the Rideau Waterway, I have not been able to learn of any other vertically coursed masonry dams existing anywhere else in the world.
