Video: The Power of Water on the Stevenson Dam

Take a look at some of the video images captured by a local reader.

John Babina shares his video, photos and insightful comments of areas hard hit by flooding following heavy rains and melting snow. Images are captured at the Monroe-Oxford border by Stevenson Dam and in neighboring Shelton.

John, your video of the Stevenson Dam is exceptional. Would you be so kind as to provide full resolution digital file(s) for future use at the Oxford Historical Society museum? We will open this spring or summer, and one of the early exhibits and programs will be on the history of the Stevenson Dam. We are also interested in the Southford Falls photos, because of the site's history as an early industrial center. Our museum will focus on Agriculture, Water Power technology, as well as general local history. Your videos would be a wonderful addition to the collection for future display. You could drop off a CD or DVD at the Oxford Library, and they will hold them for me. Those ladies have been very good to the Historical Society. Or you could snail mail to Oxford Historical Society, PO Box 582, Oxford, CT 06478. Any questions, feel free to email me at dottie@oxford-historical-society.org or dottie@debisschop.net Thanks for any assistance you can offer as the Society builds up our collection of local photos and videos. Peace, Dottie Dorothy A. DeBisschop Oxford Municipal Historian
