Balls Falls Conservation Area

Located along the banks of the Twenty Mile Creek in Jordan, Ontario is the Balls Falls Conservation Area. Here visitors can step back in time and see the original Ball family home, a flour mill, church and black smith shop.

Jacob, and his sons Peter and Thomas Ball were Lieutenants in Butler's Rangers. After the disbanding of the Rangers in 1792 the British handed out land grants to militia. Such high positions in the military would have given the Ball men their choice of a suitable parcel of land, and the brothers, no doubt saw the potential of the Twenty Mile Creek to power their mills.

A new addition to Balls Falls is the Ball’s Falls Centre for Conservation where young and old alike can learn about Niagara's rich cultural past, as well as preserving our unique eco-system for the future. * There is an admission fee to this conservation area.
