POTD: Full Power

Full Power
Ft. Peck, Montana

The building of Ft. Peck dam, a depression era Public Works Administration project to put unemployed workers back to work, was started in 1933 and completed in 1940. Work on the first power house (this one) began in 1941 but was not completed for ten years due to shortage of material and supplies during World War II.
