North River Falls Professional Review and Guide
"In the mid-1880s, this valley was home to several families of Highland Scots, who attempted to farm and raise livestock on the unrewarding soil. McLean, McKenzie, McLeod, and McAskill are still familiar names in Cape Breton, but the homesteads of the North River Valley have long been abandoned. Remnants of their presence may still be found along the trail, and the park is located on the former site of a schoolhouse and tannery."
