Category Archives: Watts Mill Waterfall
Found: May 15, 2016
Next to Marco Polo’s Italian Market and along the Indian Creek Bike Trail that passes by here is the Watts Mill Historical Site. There are a couple of plaques, although one is basically faded to the point of illegibility. There is also a “sign” erected over a couple of old millstones with plaques on either side with information about the site and the millstones. I did not take a picture of the millstones because they have been vandalized with spray paint.
There is a small park on the site and there is an overlook from where you can see the waterfall. If you walk south along the bike path there are some breaks to where you can get down on the rocks right on the creek and right on top of the waterfall. I walked up the creek a little ways and found a small flock of geese sunning themselves on a rock. I also walked down the path towards the bridge on 103rd Street and took a couple of long shots from there.
