Waterfalls

Andy | Saturday, January 02, 2016 | Best Blogger Tips

The first settlers arrived in St. Marys in the early 1840's, attracted by the area's natural resources. At the new town site, the Thames River (Canada) cascaded over a series of limestone ledges, providing the power to run the first pioneer mills and giving the community an early nickname: Little Falls.

  1. Nice history of your country, must have been hard to settle there in 1840 but a clever place with the falls.

  12. This would be a wonderful spot to sit and daydream. Perhaps in spring or summer. It looks a bit chilly for that now.

  13. I see the falls but I don't see water wheels or mills or turbines or other equipment to utilize the water power.
