Peterson Falls

 

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.
