Glen Falls

Glen Park, Williamsville, New York 14221 USA

Glen Falls is a small waterfall located on Ellicott Creek in the village of Williamsville, New York. The hydropower provided by the falls made it an ideal site for a number of early watermills used to grind grist and to power sawmills. One of the earliest settlers of what is now Williamsville, Jonas Williams, owned two mills on opposite sides of Ellicott Creek. The name of these mills, Williams Mills, eventually transformed into the name of the village in which the falls is located, Williamsville. The falls has a vertical drop of approximately . The vertical drop is part of the Onondaga Escarpment, a portion of which runs through Williamsville. Today, the falls forms part of the eastern border of Glen Park. Glen Falls has a very similar name to the city of Glens Falls, which is located in the far eastern portion of New York State, over from Williamsville.

Glen Falls, in Williamsville, NY is stunning. Pioneers began building mills along the creek here as early as 1801. The village was incorporated in 1850, and named “Williamsville,” after its predominant citizen (who was then also serving as Postmaster).
