The Flats – Probably nobody knew as much about the FLATS as Arnold Barben did. True, he never saw them; they had given way to the deep waters of Van Cleef Lake almost a dozen years before he came to live in Seneca Falls. But two of his special interests- local history and industrial development-had evolved in that riverside area, which led him to study and record the story. The cradle of Seneca Falls village was an area known as the “Flats”, now below the surface of placid Van Cleef Lake. Here were located the two lower landing places of the portage around the mile-long rapids constituting the forty-two-foot drop in the Seneca River, and then known as “the” Seneca Falls.

Images of Seneca Falls & The Flats

Images of Seneca Falls – A village located along the Seneca River, Seneca Falls was incorporated in 1831 and was soon linked to the Erie Canal by the Cayuga Seneca Canal. The women’s suffrage movement was born in Seneca Falls when the first Women’s Rights Convention, led by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, was held on July 19 and 20, 1848. Seneca County and Seneca Falls were also part of the Underground Railroad, and prominent citizens such as Ansel Bascom and Henry Seymour worked with freedom seekers in the decades before the Civil War. The town’s knitting mills produced socks for the army during the war, second only to New York City in production. Many famous people also came to Seneca Falls to rally around the town’s causes, among them are Lucretia Mott, Frederick Douglass, Garrett Smith, and Susan B. Anthony.

Both books would normally cost $29.99 but this perfect Christmas Gift has been reduced to only $20.00.
