Our thanks to Marsha Davis Spiridigliozzi for the pictures of this waterfall.  Marsha has provided us with a number of photos of falls in this area.  She took some of these and others were taken by the late Larry Cole.  They were both staff writers for the Watertown Daily Times at the time the shots were taken.

If anyone else has any information or pictures on this area, please contact us

The Middle Branch enters the West Branch of the Oswegatchie River about a mile and a half south of Harrisville.  This flows into the main branch just west of the hamlet of Talcville in the town of Edwards.  The Oswegatchie River flows into the St. Lawrence River in Ogdensburg, New York.
