UR Life

Dam/Construction in the Mattagami River Area

Helaine Dufoe

By Helaine Dufoe

From 1961 to 1967 my (now) ex-husband &I lived at the Little Long Rapids townsite -- we had one daughter when we moved there, and two when we left. It was an unbelievable experience living way up 'in the bush'. Now, over 50 years later, we have a grandson living and working at the NEW projects on the Mattagami River. There must be a lot of local men and women employed there; and am wondering why I don't see any stories from there? I'm also going to attach a picture of the dam that I took in 1962 AND also want to state that in the past few years, I've even written a story about our life there called "Life In A Ghost Town" -- because there's no townsite there anymore. I'd really appreciate someone contacting me about this - would like to look into it further. Thanks. Helaine Dufoe
