Wet-weather cascade named for the Burdin Wheeler family who lived there in 1855-1930. Their plantation was swept away by the great flood of 1929. Their family cemetery and buildings were wiped away without a trace. The Cascade Falls drops 120 feet in a 75 foot space. The drop of the falls is only 25'. Wheeler had a whiskey still at the bottom of the falls. Nearby is Medley Arch.
