Stockbridge Falls Professional Review and Guide

"This roadside falls tumbles over many levels and slides smoothly under a bridge.

Back when construction began on the Erie Canal (which opened in 1825), a special kind of limestone called hydraulic lime was discovered near Stockbridge Falls. Because of its high clay content, hydraulic lime can provide a much faster initial set time underwater than other kinds of limestone, and it does not require expansion joints, which made it a hot commodity for building a 363-mile-long, water-bearing cement ditch from Albany to Buffalo.

Once the quarry here had run its course, the falls became the site of the local schoolhouse—which still stands nearby on Stockbridge Falls Road, though it became a private home in 1938."
