Watertown Quadrangle

This cascade type waterfall lies a short distance upstream of Butternut Falls on the east side of the city of Watertown.  Both of these falls are on private property and the only way we know of reaching this one is up the creek, which would require climbing Butternut!

The information we have is that young people would swim and concregate at Butternut back in the 50s through the 80s.  Some would climb the falls and go up to this one.

This waterfall is not named.  It is on an unnamed creek that has its origin in the Rutland Hollow area.  This is a gorge/canyon area east of the city.  Because of its location, we have dubbed it Rutland Hollow Falls.  Some of the locals back in those days referred to it as Second Falls.  Where Butternut was the "first" falls, this one above it became Second Falls.

If anyone has any additional information on this location, please contact us.

This creek flows into the Black River north of here and just outside the city limits. The Black finds its way to Lake Ontario in Dexter, New York.
