Falling Springs Mill

Falling Springs Mill

This day use facility is situated on the edge of a pond formed by a spring that falls from a rock wall. The around the pond is open and grassy. The spring, known as Falling Spring because it pours out of the rock as a small waterfall, provided power for two mills. The second mill, which still stands, was built in the late 1920’s. The water power was used to produce electricity, grind, corn, and make shingles. One of our most photographed areas, there is a wooden treadway to the old mill. Also located on the site is a log cabin over 100 years old. This is a rustic picnic area with abundant history, and minimal conveniences.
