Montour Falls completes community project

The Montour Falls Improvement Association, in cooperation with the village of Montour Falls, has completed a project to erect a new sign to identify the landmark waterfall. The sign is installed on an ornamental metal pole near the entrance to the park at the base of Chequaga Falls in order to draw attention to the attraction and make it easier to find. The sign prominently uses the spelling of Chequaga with a “C.” The Shequaga name with an “S” is also displayed under the first version on the sign. Maggie Martin, improvement association member and organizer, explained the sign reflects the two most common spellings of the falls used in the village’s history. She added the Native Americans who lived in this area named the falls, but did not have a written language. Martin explained the name was passed on verbally, resulting in different spellings. The sign and bracket, with the surrounding 62 engraved granite pavers, were purchased by members of the community. They are engraved with commemorative names and messages chosen by the sponsors.
Elliott Landscaping, Vickio Signs, BMS manufacturing and the George E. Hoare Memorial Company assisted the village with the project.
