Ball’s Falls was founded in 1809 by the Balls brothers, John and George.
The town is located by a waterfall on Twenty Mile Creek. On the day I visited there was very little water flow.
Ball’s Falls has been lovingly maintained to its early mid 19th century industrial hamlet atmosphere featuring the original Ball family home, an operating flour mill, a lime kiln, a church, black smith shop, carriage shed, and more.
Ball’s Falls is located in Niagara wine country.
Oh, the summer night
Has a smile of light,
And she sits on a sapphire throne. – Barry Cornwall (1787–1874)
I love this Falls in the spring
Also lovely now
How wonderful that these old buildings are preserved. It’s a beautiful place! I would love to see Toronto’s Todmorden Mills heritage site resurrected. They should never have let it go! Thanks, Miles!
