FUN FACTS about the Village of Lyons Falls

 

Lyons Falls had a three-way bridge from 1849-1964. The Three-Way Bridge was built in 1849 and connected the Greig Road, Laura Street, and Franklin Street. The original wooden bridge was refurbished in 1916 and was turned into a steel bridge.The Three-Way Bridge at Lyons Falls was the only one in the United States.The bridge was torn down in 1964 and separate bridges were built over the Black River and Moose River. (Lyons Falls History Association).

The Black River that runs through the Village of Lyons Falls is one of the few rivers in the world that defies the idea that rivers flow in a southward direction. The Black River in Lyons Falls like the Nile River in Africa flows in a northward direction.
