Who attempted to build the dam at Niagara Oregon?
In the late 1890's, a masonry dam was started at the town of Niagara to develop power for a mill designed to make paper from straw. Construction of the dam was abandoned in 1912 after $100,000 had been spent. About this time, large numbers of Chinese workers were brought in to work on a rail line that was to be constructed over the Santiam Pass. This led to the belief by some that Chinese workers built the dam, misinformation that has kept the China Dam legend alive.
