    Beautiful pictures! My Dad’s family noved to East Durham in the late 1920s. Is this the same falls where NEEDLE’S EYE is located?

      So, first I am sorry for not quickly getting back to you. I had been researching since reading your note, but honestly cannot find anything regarding “Needle’s Eye”. So if you do not mind I would like to present this question, and see what feedback we get. Is this ok with you??
