Ausable Quadrangle

Anderson FallsThese falls at Keeseville are visible from the bridge crossing the Ausable River on Main Street.  Main Street is also State Highway 22 and this bridge is the only one in the village!

The community of Keeseville was originally known as Anderson Falls.  The namesake of that was John Anderson, an original settler.   In 1812 he sold his property to Richard Keese and the name of the community was changed.  However, the waterfall is still known as Anderson Falls.  Many sources indicate that there has been a mill of one type or another at this location for many years.  A dam may have also once existed here.

The Ausable River empties into Lake Champlain in the town of Peru.
