JOURNEY
The red brick structure of the Melfort Power House was built in 1912 - 1913. By June of 1913 the transformers and generators arrived. The 150 horsepower engine was projected to allow the plant to create approximately 23,000 volts. A second engine was added at a later date in 1915.
The Power House is used as the Museums main office. Open year round. Inside you will find a variety of displays, which are changed periodically.
