Caption: Marker detail: Falls of St. Anthony, 1887
Additional Description: "The natural appearance of the falls is entirely obliterated by the means used for improving their power. The Falls of St. Anthony would hardly be recognized by those who had visited them when nothing but the rock, the foaming water and the trees were to be seen.
