Constructed: 1882-1884

Originally known as Halls Bridge, the town was later known as Buckhorn due to the collection of deer antlers that decorated the local grist mill. This site boasted a bustling hamlet with a dam, timber slide and mills. The community expanded with temporary workers when construction began on the lock and refurbishment of the dam. Today Buckhorn boasts a thriving cottage and tourism industry.
