Bollinger Mill Turbine Reservoir
Beneath the mill itself is one of the most unique spaces I have ever seen; instead of having a chute for the water to flow through, the water would simply fill up this reservoir, forcing water through the turbine.The whole space has an ethereal quality to it, and I can only imagine what it would have sounded like with the turbine spinning below the water. You can see the two long drive shafts sticking out of the water, still connected to the turbines.
