In 1861, the 13-acre Blue Lake was formed from flooding of the north fork of Mad River, it gave the town a resort atmosphere; as the river changed course in the 1920s, the lake disappeared to become what today is a small pond on private property. In 1866, William Scott purchased land from Brice M. Stokes and established "Scott's Farm," becoming Scottsville. Powersville was established in 1869 by David Powers on land claimed by Augusta Bates, Brice M. Stokes and William Scott. In 1876 a post office opened, named "Mad River."

Ontario Highway 560

Secondary Highway 560 referred to as Highway 560, is a provincially maintained secondary highway in the northern section of the Canadian province of Ontario. It begins in the west at an intersection with Highway 144 and the Sultan Industrial Road and proceeds 184.1 kilometres east to Highway 11 at Englehart. Highway 560 was established, along with many of the secondary highways in Ontario, in 1956, it was extended westward 31.5 kilometres to Ontario Highway 144 in 1965. Aside from minor realignments along its isolated route, the route has remained unchanged since then. Highway 560 is a remote route through some of the most isolated parts of Northeastern Ontario, spanning 184.1 kilometres between Highway 144, where the road continues west as the Sultan Industrial Road, Highway 11 at Englehart. There are few gas stations and services located along the route, travelled by logging trucks; the first 31 kilometres of the route is straight, though like the rest of the highway, there are few signs of habitation along its journey through thick forests in the Canadian Shield.

At Morin Village, the spur route Highway 560A branches southwest to the village of Westree. Highway 560 meanders around several lakes dotting the remainder of its journey to Englehart, serving the communities of Silver Tree and Gowganda along its twisting route, it provides access to the West Montreal River Provincial Park at two locations west of Gowganda. Within this vast uninhabited region, Highway 560 is the closest public road to the highest point in Ontario, Ishpatina Ridge. At Elk Lake, the route provides access to Makobe - Grays River Provincial Park and meets Highway 65, with which it shares a 1.0-kilometre concurrency. It continues another 23 kilometres through dense forests before emerging into the Ottawa-Bonnechere Graben; the remaining 16.6 kilometres of Highway 560 travels through agricultural lands, as well as the community of Charlton, before ending at Highway 11 on the western edge of Englehart. Like other provincial routes in Ontario, Highway 560 is maintained by the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario.

In 2010, traffic surveys conducted by the ministry showed that on average, 1,100 vehicles used the highway daily along the 9.2-kilometre section between Highway 11 and Highway 573 while 210 vehicles did so each day along the 30.6-kilometre section between the latter and Highway 65, the highest and lowest counts along the highway, respectively. Highway 560A is a secondary highway which serves as a short spur route from Highway 560 southwest to the railway crossing in the community of Westree, its total length is 9.5 kilometres. Based on the metrics provided in the section above, an average of 170 vehicles traverse the highway each day. Highway 560 was first designated like many of the secondary highways in Ontario. Highway 560 provided the only access into the interior of the Temagami region and Gogama. However, in the mid-1960s, work began on a new link between Timmins. 31.5 kilometres was absorbed into the route of Ontario Highway 144 in April 1965. Since the western terminus of Highway 560 has been at Highway 144.

Although numerous minor realignments have been made to the route over the years, the general alignment of the highway has remained unchanged. The following table lists the major junctions along Highway 560. Highway 560 at OntHighways.com

Weaving shed

A weaving shed is a distinctive type of single storey mill developed in the early 1800s in Lancashire and Yorkshire to accommodate the new power looms weaving cotton, silk and worsted. A weaving shed can be a component of a combined mill. Power looms cause severe vibrations requiring them to be located on a solid ground floor. In the case of cotton, the weaving shed needs to remain moist. Maximum daylight is achieved, by the sawtooth "north-facing roof lights"; the early textile trade relied on domestic outworking. Handloom weavers would take the yarn to their cottage loom shops, return the completed fabric to the mill. Reliable power looms that could be worked from an overhead line shaft were not available before Kenworthy and Bulloughs weft stop motion, the roller temple and the loose reed which appeared in the 1840s; the first weaving floors were on the ground floor of the existing narrow mills, where the workpiece was lit by tall exterior windows. The weaving shed, they adjoined existing mills, were built as standalone mills by speculating investors or by industrial co-operatives of former handloom weavers.

Either group would operate the shed as a room and power mill. Here as the name suggests, space was rented to other companies who could specialise in weaving with out the skills needed to finance and maintain a building. Weaving sheds were cheap to fireproof having no wooden beams, they were safer, because their north-facing roof windows meant they were not as dependent on gas-lighting as were spinning mills. The purpose of a weaving shed was to provide spaces for rows of identical looms. A standard shed would house 1200 looms, it was common to think in multiples of 400 looms; these looms would be tentered by weavers who worked from four to eight looms each and were paid on piece-rate. The looms would be maintained by a skilled tackler who would be on hand to gait the looms and effect instant repairs or adjustments. There would be four tacklers for 400 looms; the looms were powered by leather belts from overhead cross-shafts, on bevel gears from the line shaft that ran the length of the shed. Attached to the weaving shed in a typical mill would be a boiler house where the steam was raised, an engine room housing a stationary steam engine and a two or three storey building where the preparatory processes were done below and above would be the warehouse.

This housed the offices. Weaving was not possible without a continuous supply of weft on pirns, beams carrying the warp. Starting with the warp, it had to be warped from creels of thread, in a multistage process onto the weavers' beam; this could be done in the mill or the warp could be bought in and delivered on the tapers beam. The beam of thread had to be sized in a tape sizing machine by sizers; each thread had to pass through the correct eye in the heddle, through the reed. This was done on a drawing-in frame by loomers; the beam and reed would be carried through into the weaving-shed and gaited to the loom by the tackler.s The pirns used for the weft in the shuttles were wound by a pirner, on a pirning machine in the shed or be bought shuttle ready from the spinners. The completed pieces would be cut off the loom, this left the shed to go back to the warehouse where it would be examined for faults by the cloth looker, if it was of satisfactory quality and forwarded to the client; the payroll and paper work was done by office staff.

The weaving sheds were simple working industrial buildings and the external materials used in their construction are robust and there was little in the way of ornamentation. External walls were in coursed rubble stone or brick; the few openings or windows were in simple detailed timber joinery. Internal materials comprised stone flag floors, exposed cast iron structure, timber joinery and boarded partitions and lime plaster on lath soffits to the south facing roof slopes; the sheds were built into the hillside so the wall would benefit from contact with damp earth that would maintain the moisture levels in the shed required by cotton weaving. The shed would be modular using a 3m by 6m bay, the beams of the roof being supported by cast iron columns; the ground to beam clearance was 3.5m and the ground to ridge height was 4.6m. Sheds used a longitudinal beam under the gutter beam eliminating the need for a row of columns, creating a 6m by 6m lattice; the modular nature enable sheds to infill on irregularly shaped sites.

The north light roofs to the majority of weaving sheds were constructed with simple 30 degree pitched roofs, comprising a simple structure of common rafters with slate roof coverings facing south and glazed lights to the north. The cast iron beams that support these rows of north lights are ingeniously designed as inverted channel sections such that they both carry the load of the roofs and act as rainwater gutters; the rainwater would exit to identical drainpipes on the west exterior walls. The gutter beams were laid flat with joints aligned over column heads; the end of each gutter section has an external flange enabling sections to be bolted together over a bracket to the head of the column. The brackets were designed to collect any resulting leak at the joint and channelled it down the inside of the hollow columns. Cast iron tie rods running from the columnheads, at right angles to the gutterbeams, gave lateral rigidity; the columns were the mounting points for the lineshaft bearings. Though the North Light Roof Shed predominated in Lancashire and Yorkshire, there were always variations caused by local needs.
