The Falls

Photos

Toccoa Falls, on the campus of Toccoa Falls College. These falls are 186 feet high, 34 feet higher than Niagara Falls. “Toccoa” in the Cherokee language means “beautiful.”

The pathway to Toccoa Falls in spring is beautiful—just like its name! Natural Azaleas, Rhododendron and Mountain Laurel dot the banks of the gouge and path leading to the falls.

Pre 1900s Falls

Toccoa Falls, pre-1900s. Locals like to say that this photograph was taken before the “big” rock fell to the bottom of the gouge. When the rock that now rest at the bottom of the falls did fall, the force of its impact shook windows in the homes of those living in the city of Toccoa—some two miles away.
