This is a large cement and stone structure in the forest. It also happens to be near some very nice beaches along the Harrison River. Stunning scenery and nice birdlife all around.
Ba careful of some of the blackberry bushes and brambles you'll encounter in the area, and everything shold be lovely.

**UPDATE august 2015* by RIO
Talking to the locals, they informed me that someone bought the propriety in 2014. The new owner have since been spending plenty of time out there, and kicking people off the propriety.

    This is all that is left of the Rat Portage Lumber Company mill that was built in the early years of the 20th century. It was a beast in its day, but the boiler room was the only part made out of cement, and the rest being wooden is long gone. The size of the structure is important because it was too big for the timber rights available in the area, and only operated for a few years before shutting down.
