Long before the Loyalist settlers arrived, the falls at Napanee were known as the ‘Appannea’. The origin is uncertain, but early 19th century accounts attribute it to the Mississaugas. With the arrival of Loyalist settlers, a saw and grist mill was erected, giving rise to the tradition that it meant a place to grind wheat.
Now you can stroll along the banks of the River. Enjoying the sounds of the falls and birds that come. Along the trail, you will find pieces of art to appreciate and other elements for a picture-perfect moment.
