Seneca Falls


Located between the northern ends of Cayuga and Seneca Lake is an area once known by the Indian name “Sha-so-onse,” or “running waters.” Seneca Falls is noted for its spectacular natural beauty, described by one visitor in 1791 as the “Paradise of America.” More recently, it is believed to have provided inspiration for the fictional village of “Bedford Falls” in the 1946 classic “It’s A Wonderful Life.”
