As one might guess, Chair Factory Falls was once the site of a bustling chair factory until the massive mill caught fire, reducing it to nothing more than a few charred wooden planks. Until recently, this beautiful waterfall was located on private land and access to the public was restricted. To keep a natural landmark as incredible as Chair Factory Falls on private land almost felt like a crime against the residents of Lake County, and the waterfall’s landowners seemed to agree. Thanks to a generous 4.5-acre donation from Laura Macmillan Crago, Johanna Bates, and Julia Macmillan, this waterfall is now open to the public and can be viewed by taking a short .3-mile trail that stems from the Greenway Corridor Trail.
