Cataract Falls, IN

Cataract Falls, IN
Cataract Falls, IN

“Cataract Falls, where two sets of falls on Mill Creek create a cascade that drops 86 feet, is the largest waterfall in Indiana. The upper falls has a sheer plunge of 20 feet; the lower falls – about a half a mile downstream – has a fall of some 18 feet. There was a primitive bridge across Mill Creek between the upper and lower falls that washed out in the flood of 1875. A 140 ft. Smith Type 3 covered bridge was built at the upper falls in 1876 and was open to traffic until 1988. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources restored the Cataract Bridge in 1995.” source Cataract Falls website  ©2016 Art BySilent Studio

Cedar Water Tower – B&W

Built in 1883 by the Illinois Central Railroad this 100,000 gallon tower and the newly built 32 acre lake helped to modernize rail traffic by eliminating four stops by the steam engines between Centralia and Effingham.

The City of Kinmundy purchased the water tower and the lake in 1961 and used both in the water system for the City until 2001, when the new 107 acre lake was built.  The tower was then retired after 118 years of continuous service.  It has been completely restored.  The Illinois Central Wooden Water Tower was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 12, 1998.  ©2016 Art BySilent Studio

“The domestic cat (Latin: Felis catus) is a small, typically furry, carnivorous mammal. They are often called house cats when kept as indoor pets or simply cats when there is no need to distinguish them from other felids and felines. Cats are often valued by humans for companionship and for their ability to hunt vermin. There are more than 70 cat breeds; different associations proclaim different numbers according to their standards.” source Wikipedia.  ©2016 Art BySilent Studio
