    In 1913, the Riordon Pulp and Paper Company Limited began to developed a pulp and paper mill in Temiscaming, with a town for its workers. In 1918 it was completed along with the Lumsden's Mill dam, while work continued into 1919 for the power facilities. In 1926, the hydro facilities were sold to the Gatineau Power Company, which built a "tower of balance" and this steel pipeline connecting it to the power house below.

    The Gatineau Power Company sold the power facilities to Hydro-Québec in 1963 during the period of nationalisation of Quebec power companies, and these facilities were closed in 1969.
