Gunn Historical Museum in Washington, in collaboration with the Steep Rock Association and Hollister House Garden, will present an illustrated program, “The Bull’s Bridge to Waterbury Power Line in Washington, Conn.,” Sept. 23 at 10 a.m.

Steve Jones and Zac Mirecki will present the program in the new program barn at Hollister House Garden at 300 Nettleton Hollow Road in Washington.

Following the program, Jones and Mirecki will lead a history hike in Steep Rock Preserve in Washington, where participants will see and hear more about the remaining features of the power line.

The Bull’s 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.

The electricity generated at the plant was not used locally, but transported 26 miles to Waterbury.

In their continuing research on the power line, Jones and Mirecki have discovered new information which they will share during the presentation.

They will also discuss the short but turbulent history of the power line, and rediscover its long-lost route through the southern part of Washington, including Nettleton Hollow, and they will have a display of the actual artifacts found along the route.
