Photo of Little Falls area If you havenâ€™t been up to Little Falls recently then you probably have forgotten how beautiful the area is. Few colleges have this type of scenery and it is a wonderful place for a picnic because it borders on nothing commercial. In fact the closest neighbor is the National Forest. Evelyn Forrest named this place Glenn Falls after a small river that flowed near her home in Cecil County, Maryland. So, while we know it as the Little Falls, she knew it as a area that reminded her of the place were she was born.
