Loggers found five sets of waterfalls and rapids on the Bonnechere River and built Log Chutes around them. This is the Third Chute of the group located in downtime Douglas. Access is not easy but going south on Mallock St. and left Emilin will bring you down to the Bonnechere River. Bonnechere Falls was the first chute,  the Second Chute is in Douglas, the Fourth Chute is near to Douglas and the Fifth Chute used to run through the gorge at Eganville.

John and George Ball were awarded this land as soldiers loyal to the British in the American Revolution. They built a five story grist mill at the lower of two waterfalls in 1809 and added a woolen mill near the Upper Falls in about 1840. The Niagara Conservation Authority purchased the property in 1962.
