Staton’s Falls, on Staton’s Creek, secured its name from a local family. William Staton of Amherst County, an early landowner in the area, may have owned property along the creek. Now the area around the falls is part of the Pedlar Ranger District of George Washington National Forest. Other names for Staton’s Falls include Lace Falls and Deadman’s Falls. The last name is a result of accidents that happen here annually. Always be prudent around falls.
