A Monument To Engineering: The Midwest Electric Plant
How to find it: Return to Power Plant Road (County Road 116) and continue northwest about one mile; the power plant is a massive structure that can be viewed from a wire gate across the road. This gate is 4.3 miles from the main highway at Midwest. According to Pauline Schultz, curator of the Salt Creek Museum, the public can continue past the gate to get a closer view of the plant.
