Falling Spring

Not exactly a spring per se, Falling Spring is rather a gathering of surface waters from the upland that travel through the porous subterranean chambers of the karst geology of the area only to re-emerge as a notable cascade midway up the 150-foot limestone face of the bluffs. While the site is on private land and fenced off to deter trespassing, this was not always the case. In fact, the waterfall features prominently in nineteenth- and twentieth-century narratives of the region as a site of recreation and for its picturesque qualities.

Slight improvements and concessions were made in the post-war years to attract visitors, but after a series of rambunctious nights at the former bar, the site is now closed to visitors.
