Site history

The Agawamuck Creek and these falls have been an important part of Philmont’s history and development. In the early 19th century hydropower was the chief source of energy for industry; the water provided by the creek led to the growth of a bustling town called Factory Hill which was later renamed Philmont. In the mid-1990’s the landowner at that time contacted CLC to explore how the property could be made available to the public.
