A historical display may be seen on the site of a hydro power station on the Mangawharariki Stream. The 25kw(e) power scheme was an adjunct to a project to provide Mangaweka with water and sewage. A curved ferro-concrete dam 10 m high was constructed across the Mangawharaiki River. Built in 1911 the enterprise produced electricity until 1937.
