Lehigh Falls (Old Mills)
41 07' 75 N
75 37' 65 W

Lehigh Falls is the site of one of the first planned industrial villages that was masterminded by John Stoddard. This magnificent site is hidden in the reaches of the river above Francis E. Walter Dam. The land on either side of the river is privately owned, making access to the falls limited. The Devonian shale, limestone, and sandstone of the area provide layered surfaces over which the waters of the Lehigh gracefully flow.
