Thomas "Carbide" Willson was a Canadian inventor who built a small industrial complex in the early 1900s to experiment with and make phosphate fertilizer. His electrical generating plant is now in ruins and the area has been reclaimed by forest. It's still a picturesque spot with the Meech Creek flowing through. Willson built a huge home nearby above Meech Lake, which was the site of the notorious Canadian constitutional debacle. Today the ruined plant is popular with hikers, photographers and nudists. HDR.
