- In the early 1800s, High Falls was a prosperous industrial town with several stores, a grist mill, cotton gin, blacksmith shop, shoe factory, and hotel. High Falls became a ghost town in the 1880s when a major railroad bypassed it. Today, visitors at High Falls State Park can enjoy the scenic waterfall on the Towaliga River and hike to the remaining grist mill foundation. With its 995 acres of historic and natural beauty, High Falls State Park is a good place to spend nights camping and days taking life easy.
