On June 11 and 12, 2007, the US Geological Survey officially named both Interstate Falls and Peterson Falls as two separate waterfalls on the Montreal River. Interstate Falls is the 18-foot waterfall currently for sale on the Wisconsin side. Peterson Falls is about a half mile upstream, just over the property line, on land owned by Scott & Kathy Peterson.
