Falling Spring—Picnic Area has a spring flowing from a rock bluff, Falling Spring Mill, and historic log cabin. The site has been popular for weddings, family outings, and photographers. The area was bought by the Forest Service from Emil Slovak in the spring of 1966. The first house built at Falling Spring was the old log cabin which is over 100 years old. A blacksmith shop once stood between the house and the cave entrance north of the spring outlet. At one time there was a barn on the hill above the cemetery, which served as a valuable shelter in time of flood. According to Mr. Walter Brown, former owner, said flood used to be more common on Hurricane Creek. The first mill used a wooden water wheel. The second is the present mill which was built between 1927 and 1929.
