Located about halfway between Middletown and Middlefield, Wadsworth State Park is part of the legacy created by Clarence Seymour Wadsworth. Said to be well ahead of his time, Wadsworth's desire to promote preservation and the smart growth of communities lead to a lifelong focus on environmental stewardship. By 1935, Wadsworth had established the Rockfall Corporation, preserved the acreage around Wadsworth Falls and established an arboretum on his Long Hill estate. After his death in 1942, a portion of his estate was turned over to the state so the public could enjoy Wadsworth Falls.
