History of River Falls

The deafening haul of the giant lumber saws, the hiss of escaping steam, and the crash of falling timber were sounds that are engraved into the history of River Falls.

River Falls, named for a national water falls in the sum of the Conecuh River between the site of the town and old Montezuma, was the home of the great Horseshoe Timber Company.

The mills, which stood on the banks of the Conecuh River at the horseshoe land just east of town, are gone. All that remains of this once huge lumber mill is the concrete foundation.
