The modern community of Roaring Falls boasts of a heritage that began more than 175 years ago, when the first trappers and early pioneers settled in the newly acquired Indian territory. These families were soon joined by the first few settlers, and afterward, when the area was surveyed and opened for habitation, development of the community has continued to grow to the present day.
This thriving city clings to its earlier agricultural background while giving the appearance as a recent development. Several century-old homes blend unnoticed with their contemporary new neighbors. Well-preserved early historical structures, including two stone Churches constructed in the 1850's and Stren's Mill completed in 1866, are a reminder of Roaring Falls elegant past.
The three magnificent waterfalls, for which the city was named; its pristine lakes and lush forests, draw tourists from all corners of the globe. Shoppers flock to the massive new mall at Gray's Crossing, and enjoy visiting the many quaint shops and stores in the Old City Area, boasting of a gentle, simpler lifestyle, from days of yore.
