Edwards Quadrangle

Fullerville FallsThe application to have this waterfall officially named is pending. 

Near the hamlet of Fullerville, there are two sections of these falls, separated by a small island and are clearly visible from the bridge. This section of CR 24 is also known locally as the Russell Turnpike, which has a significant part in the history of this area and in the War of 1812.

We have information that Fullerville Falls, along with Fullerville Upper Falls, were once known collectively in the area as Twin Falls.  The name of this waterfall is now official, having been added to the GNIS data base on November 9, 2017.

There are three other small waterfalls upstream from these two.

The Oswegatchie River flows into the St. Lawrence River in Ogdensburg, New York.
