    Hi Chris,

    Thank you! This is very interesting! I have visited Letchworth many times in the past, but I’ve never been to the dam. I’ve also read historical newspaper reports of the Genesee River flooding, but I didn’t know until now what was done to stop it. Letchworth is an amazing park. Thanks for highlighting it.

    Great article.
    It’s so close to the city and I bet very few people have even thought about going here.
    Maybe go to the park but not the dam.
    I’ve been inside once, on the tour, and it’s something to think about all the concrete that’s above your head.
    Nice going out on the deck to see how huge the dam is.
    Plus the displays in the visitor’s center are great too.
    Lots of info and how the project affected our city.
    Thank you.

    My Dad was the Dam superintendent when I was growing up. It is an amazing structure, I was fortunate to have been able to explore just about every inch of the Mt Morris Dam – it was right in my backyard for many years ❤️ If you ever get the opportunity go for the tour!
