Town Board meeting July 22, 6:30

The Town of Waverly was formed in 1880 from part of the Town of Dickinson. Half its area was lost to the Town of Altamont (the present-day Town of Tupper Lake) in 1890. The St. Regis Falls area was a major lumber producer, and the Northern Adirondack Railroad was built from Moira, connecting the area to the Ogdensburgh and Lake Champlain Railroad.

The Azure Mountain Fire Observation Station was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.

St. Regis Falls  is located at the north end of the Town of Waverly, along the north side of the St. Regis River, a tributary of the St. Lawrence River. The falls for which the community is named are on the river at the west end of town. According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 1.29 square miles (3.35 km2), all of it land. [1]

New York State Route 458 passes through the community, leading west 8 miles (13 km) to Nicholville and southeast 6.5 miles (10.5 km) to Santa ClaraPotsdam is 23 miles (37 km) to the west via Routes 458 and 11B, while Paul Smiths is 26 miles (42 km) to the southeast via Routes 458 and 30.


The northern border of the CDP follows the Waverly/Dickinson town line.

Saint Regis Falls Central School is located in the northern part of the CDP, serving the town of Waverly and surrounding towns.


The marshy area east of the village where the water meets Duane Street (Red Tavern Road) on both sides just before Trim Hill is often referred to as Alligator Alley.
