UPPER NICHOLSONS LOCKSTATION A few hundred yards downstream from Clowes, on the opposite side of the river, is Nicholsons Lockstation. The lockstation was named after Robert Nicholson, a Loyalist immigrant. In 1861 a man named Rufus Andrews located a flour mill adjacent to the lock. By 1880 the population of what was by then known as Andrewsville had grown to 200. Andrews eventually sold his sawmill and it operated under a number of different owners until 1899 when it was bought by Alonzo Bowen. Lockstation services: parking, charts and permit sales, on-site identification, picnic areas, day use docking, boater camping and overnight mooring. Swimming, fishing and boat watching are here.
