Falling Waters, WV
I'd seen the sign for Falling Waters on Interstate 81 and wondered about the name. When I learned that there was a Civil War battle there, I decided to look it up.
At first it did not sound like a place worth driving to. The battlefield has not been preserved in a way that would make sense without a guide, and until recently there were very few historical markers. But there was a battlefield group working on improvements. Eventually some Civil War Trails markers went up and I put the area on my list of places to visit.
This past weekend provided us some mild weather that I did not want to waste by staying indoors, so I looked up the sign locations on Historical Markers Database.
I was pleased to see a photo of a waterfall and a note that it is "located just south of the marker." When we got there we found another sign as well indicating the presence of the falls, which we could already hear below us. The path there is steep but very short. I would not take it on an icy day; however, you could slip and end up in the river!
