Focus on Trenton Falls

TRENTON — One of our area’s most scenic attractions is the subject of a new book that is sure to lure more admirers.

"Trenton Falls: The West Canada Creek and Around Trenton Falls" is the title of the new book by local photographer Pamela Underhill Karz. It is her first book.

Organized by season, the book aims to take readers on a journey to experience what makes Trenton Falls special. Featured are memorable photographs of Falls-area scenes.

Those familiar with the history of Trenton Falls know this attraction was a landmark long before John Sherman first viewed the falls in 1805 during a visit from Connecticut.

As the Trenton website points out, the next year Sherman moved to Trenton to be the pastor of the Reformed Christian Church. Sherman resigned as pastor in 1810 and established a teaching academy next to the low ground trail to Trenton Falls. More information on the falls is available at:

If, after reading about the falls, you want to pay a personal visit, check the website, which will post 2012 open dates for the Trenton Falls Scenic Trails when available. Brookfield Renewable Power and the Town of Trenton developed the Trenton Falls Scenic Trail to offer the public an opportunity to experience local history while enjoying this natural phenomenon.
