   Not far from the Canadian border, Colebrook is the largest town in New Hampshire's Coos County and the state's Great North Woods. North of the famous White Mountains region, Colebrook's initial history dates back to the late 1700s when Colonial Governor John Wentworth re-granted the town's charter. Noted for its excellent soil, Coos County was a favorable area for growing potatoes. The abundant forests along Beaver Brook also placed Colebrook at the center of the lumbering industry.
   As anyone would imagine, Colebrook residents must have enjoyed Beaver Brook Falls over the past centuries, just as those who get the chance to visit the Great North Woods waterfall today. The beautiful 80 foot cascade is the centerpiece of Beaver Brook Falls Scenic Area. Here, just off Route 145, the small wayside park offers a picnic area and pavilion. One of the most scenic areas in New Hampshire's North Country, the Beaver Brook Falls is considered one of the top waterfall sites in the state.
