Delaware River

Address:
Valley Falls, KS 66088



About this Exploration:


The Delaware River was first called the Grasshopper River.  The Grasshopper River had the Piazzek Mill and the Legler Mill on it.  The millstones from the Legler Mill can be viewed in the Valley Falls City Park.  After the grasshopper invasion of early 1870s the river was renamed after the Delaware Indians and remains that way today.

The Delaware River was dammed in the 1960s to provide water to create Perry Reservoir.
