Also known as Angel Falls
Java Village, New York
Location: Western Wyoming County in Java Village on Beaver Meadow Creek.
Java Falls has been incorrectly known as Angel Falls since about 1957. Apparently there was some confusion by mapmakers with the location of the true Angel Falls which is located elsewhere on private property. The land is posted against trespassing and neighboring landowners also keep an eye out for trespassers. The owners of the true Angel Falls have requested that you ask them for permission if you would like to view it. Please respect their rights and ask for permission to enter their land.
Locating the owners is your responsibility. I was asked not to publish the owners name on the internet. If you wish to view this falls you must do the research to locate the owners. It is not that hard to do. It took me less than 15 minutes. I found the owners to be very willing to grant access.
Please respect their rights and ask for permission to enter their land.
A post office was established here about 1826 under the name of Gurney's Mills. Lyman D. Wood was the first postmaster. The name of the post office was changed a few years later to Java Village. In this area Java is pronounced "Jay-vuh." The office of the Java Agency was once the town hall. A feed store was located near the southeastern corner of the parking area.
