Laona Falls, Laona, Chautauqua County, NY

In Laona, NY, right off of Route 60 is a beautiful little waterfall, Laona Falls, on the Canadaway Creek just south of Fredonia, NY. This is in the midst of the beauty of Western New York's Chautauqua County. Laona is an interesting little town that has a spiritualist background. Supposedly the American composer Alan Hovhaness composed two works inspired by this town, continuing the theme of the roots of music within this region of New York, between the Fredonia Opera House, SUNY Fredonia's acclaimed music program, and the musical and academic heritage associated with Chautauqua County and the Chautauqua Institution. Laona was a haven for 19th century mediums and I am certain that the beauty of these falls, and the other nearby falls, created a beautiful haven for this type of activity. Be sure to go and explore Western NY. It is only just north of the border of PA from Erie, along the Lake Erie coastline, and there is just so much natural beauty.
