Little Falls, Herk. Co.

Little Falls is a village situated in the most romantic portion of the Mohawk Valley, in a deep gorge or vale, between the mountain chain which extends from Pennsylvania to Lake Champlain, sufficiently wide to form a channel for the Mohawk River, and the Erie Canal, the writer knows no portion of the State where such good water power can be commanded, the river having a declevity of 45 feet in half a mile in several cascades, rapids or little falls, from which circumstance the village takes its name, on the north side the hill rises in a gentle acclevity, and on the south, abruptly, to a height of 700 feet; at one place a beautiful prospect is afforded from a point called Lovers Leap; the valley is intimately, connected with the bloody horrors of the times of the revolution. There are now several large and extensive woolen and cotton mills; 3 paper mills, R. B. Mooney's & Waite & Co's; an iron foundry and a starch manufactury are now in full operation. Messrs. Mitchell & Bailey, the shoddy manufacturers are located here, as also the Warrior Mower Co., and the Cottage Hotel is a first class house. The education of the young is ably attended by the public schools, &c. The churches are ample. It is 74 miles from Albany, on the N.Y. C. & H. H. H. R. Population over 6,000.
