Gunn Historical Museum in Washington will present a program, “The Bulls Bridge to Waterbury Powerline in Washington,” Nov. 13 at 1 p.m.

Stephan Jones and Zac Mirecki will present the free, illustrated program at Gunn Memorial Library on Wykeham Road.

The Bulls Bridge hydroelectric power project, built on the Housatonic River in 1904, was the largest power project of its kind at the time east of the Rocky Mountains.

Remarkably, the electricity generated here was not used locally but transported 26 miles over to Waterbury.

This created both amazement and disdain for the project.

Jones and Mirecki will discuss the short but turbulent history of this power line, and rediscover its long-lost route through the southwestern corner of Washington, and some of the artifacts discovered along the route.
