Wells Falls (Van Nattas Falls) is a 65-foot multi-tiered cascade adjacent to an abandoned pumping station in Ithaca, New York.
The waterfall is one of the more unique natural landmarks in the Finger Lakes region of New York. It is adjacent to a circa 1893 pumping station that was used to deliver water to the burgeoning city from a far-flung reservoir. It was built on the site of the former Van Natta & Jones Mill that at one point, produced seven grades of flour.
The pumping station was abandoned decades ago and today, Wells Falls serves as a popular swimming hole and recreation area only minutes from downtown.
