original camps on Higley Flow were often housing for the workers on the
new dam and seasonal campers. Roads were dirt tracks, or less,
cut into the reforested landscape. Many of the outlying camps
were only available during the winter months by travelling over the ice.
Eventually, roads improved, and trailers and larger camps were brought in or constructed.
|Today, year-round homes are becoming the 'norm' around Higley Flow. Paved roads cover most of the area and, in many ways, Higley Flow has become the suburbia of Potsdam, Canton and other nearby communities. Yet, we're but minutes from all the natural wonder of the Adirondack Park and beauty surrounds us every day.|
