Cedar Falls photograph
Description: This photograph shows Cedar Falls at Hocking Hills State Park and Forest, located in Logan, Ohio, in Hocking County. Early settlers named the site Cedar Falls, mistaking the hemlock trees that surround the falls for cedars. In 1924, the state of Ohio purchased 146 acres in the Hocking Hills that became Hocking Hills State Park in 1949. In 1972, the park added a dining lodge and cabins. Hocking Hills State Park is known for its geologic features of blackhand sandstone, waterfalls, and forests. The six main areas of the park are Old Man's Cave, Cedar Falls, Ash Cave, Rock House, Conkles Hollow, and Cantwell Cliffs. View on Ohio Memory.
