Carl McLaughlin on growing up at the Moshier Falls Dam

In 1961, the summer before Carl McLaughlin’s freshman year in high school, he moved with his family to the Moshier Falls Dam on the Beaver River, in the Town of Webb in Herkimer County. Carl’s father worked for Niagara Mohawk and was responsible for the maintenance of the hydro station. The whole family lived in a home near the dam, and even though Carl and his brother weren’t employed by Niagara Mohawk, they ended up doing a lot of work (and play) at the dam.
