Just a short drive from Meridian, Mississippi down I-59 south is where John Dunn first rerouted a local stream to create a waterfall to power the area’s only grist mill back in the 1850s. In 1857, a grist mill from Cave Springs, Georgia was reconstructed on the current Dunn’s Falls site and still stands today. Towering over 65 feet, the waterfall’s rushing water can be experienced in the wading pool at its bottom ledge. It’s easy to get lost in time at Dunn’s Falls as you walk through nature trails along the Chunky River and take in the history at the old grist mill. Here you will find antiques and relics from the era and possible for the first time see how an old grist mill actually worked. Want to stay the night? Primitive camping sites are available. The pond that feeds the waterfall is stocked with catfish and also has paddle boats for rent. You can swim in the crystal clear waters of the Chunky River or fish from its banks. Dunn’s Falls is noted as one of Mississippi’s treasures showcasing early settler innovation, beauty, and peacefulness.
