Lanterman’s Falls

I made a side trip to Mill Creek Park yesterday and visited the beautiful Lanterman’s Falls. The park is Youngstown’s treasure, and the falls and mill must be the highlight of the park.

The mill was built in 1845 and restored in 1985. It is still used to grind corn and buckwheat.
