Welcome

The Friends of Valley Falls, Inc. is a private non-profit 501(c)(3) all volunteer organization. Organized in 1972, the friends mission is to promote the betterment of Valley Falls Park and Valley Falls Farm. The area is considered the most scenic in Vernon, and is known as “Vernon’s Jewel”. It has a rich historical background, and is a popular recreational site.

Valley Falls Farm, a 7-acre property at the corner of Bolton Road and Valley Falls Road in Vernon, is owned by the Friends. The property includes an historic 1850s farmhouse and 6 farm outbuildings. Valley Falls Park is a 196-acre public recreation area that is owned by the Town of Vernon. It is located on Valley Falls Road, directly across from Valley Falls Farm.
