On the downstream side of the bridge, a three story stone building was built into the vertical gorge wall in 1898 and used to conduct experiments on the physical and hydraulic properties of water. It was the largest hydraulics lab in the country and was closed in 1970, then collapsed into the gorge in 2009.
