Greenville Falls are located on Greenville Creek just to the west of Range Line Road near Covington, Ohio. From this location the creek flows northeast about a mile or two then empties into the Stillwater River which joins with the Great Miami down to the Ohio into the Mississippi and out the Gulf of Mexico.

The first mention of the falls are found in the journals of Anthony Wayne mainly because they were an obstacle to navigation for the supply line that served the Fort at Greene Ville.

Although swimming is now prohibited, for years the falls were enjoyed by kids during the hot days of summer.

A small park, the entrance to which is found on Gettysburg Road, allows access to the overlook from which this picture was taken. RMB
