Lanterman's Mill Falls


Why You Should Visit

Located in Mill Creek Park within the city of Youngstown, Lanterman's Mill was built in 1845-46 by German Lanterman and Samuel Kimberly. The mill was restored in the early 1980's thanks to a gift from the Ward and Florence Beecher Foundation and today is actually still in operation. You can purchase some of the products produced by the mill in its gift shop. The East and West Gorge Trails follow Mill Creek both upstream and downstream, passing through a gorge perhaps more impressive than the waterfall itself. Admission into the park is free for children under 6, $.75 for students between 6-18, $1.00 for Mahoning County Residents, and $2 for everyone else. That being said, I've visited this park several times and have never once had to pay.

Park your car on East Park Drive, which is right off of Canfield Road. After finding a parking spot walk back towards Canfield Road. A trail will take you under a bridge spanning the creek and will open up to views of the mill and waterfall.
