A few centuries ago, the Salmon Falls area was a prime location for salmon and shad returning to their spawning grounds. Native Americans and European settlers enjoyed the bounty of the Deerfield River. The General Court instituted a fishing treaty (1744) along this stretch, keeping the area public for all avid fishermen.
