Carpenter’s Falls

Carpenter’s Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Many spirits dwelled here at this sheer drop, including the distilled kind. If you’re looking for a waterfall with a storied past, Carpenter’s Falls offers a century’s worth of tales almost as colorful as the bridal veil falls itself.

Back nearly 200 years in 1834, the Carpenter family—James Carpenter and his son John—bought this property and the whiskey still that stood at the top of the falls. They built a sawmill that became a gristmill, and used the falls to power these enterprises."
