Plaque describing the Legend of Issaqueena Falls
The falls are named for a legendary Cherokee girl who is said to have leaped from the top of the falls with her lover, either an Oconee brave, a white trader named Allan Francis, or a white silversmith named David Francis. In the story, Issaqueena and her lover either die together or they land on a ledge out of sight of hostile tribesmen and eventually live happily ever after.
The waterfall is close to another notable local landmark, Stumphouse Tunnel, and a park provides access to both.
