Located on Everett Street behind the Fancher Chair Company (121 S Work St, Falconer, NY) and surrounded by residential neighborhoods is a little piece of property owned and maintained by Chautauqua County. Formerly known as the Falconer Millrace Park, it is now known as the Abe Mattison Millrace Park. Open 8am until dusk. Picnic tables, grills, and a canoe launch.The water channel you see in front of you is the remnant of a millrace circa 1850. This race was used to float lumber from a sawmill constructed in 1807 which eventually grew into the present Fancher Chair Company. The logs were carried in the race to the Chadakoin River and then to growing cities along the Allegheny, Ohio, and Mississippi Rivers.
Please enjoy and respect our nature trails, canoe launch, picnic area and pedestrian walkways and bridges. This park is owned and maintained by the Chautauqua County Parks Department.
