The History of the

Chris Matthy, a member and one of the historians of the Paradise Falls Lutheran Association (PFLA), shared the history of the association since its founding in 1922.  The PFLA began as a cottage community for Lutheran pastors and their families.  The 425 acre property centers around the private dam-made Lake Crawford, Paradise Falls and Paradise Creek. Chris also shared some exciting
news about an expansion of this
important piece of the history of
Paradise Township.
