Nestled in a narrow valley and
along the winding stream of
Freeman Run is the ruins of the
Bayless Paper Mill Dam, currently
referred to as the Austin Dam.
In 1911 the dam broke and water
engulfed much of the town of
Austin and claimed over 78 lives.
the Austin Dam Memorial Park
Association was formed and they
since have worked diligently to
preserve the dam remains and to
create a beautiful natural park.

|While this stage quietly blends in naturally
much of the year, it has been the setting of
bands, weddings, dancers, presentations
and gatherings. It is equipped with eletricity
and can be covered with our canopy.
