Frog Lake Waterfall, Then and Now

You can find the Duke Farms "Frog Lake Waterfall" just inside the Raritan Gate at the northwest corner of the historic core of James B. Duke's Hillsborough estate.

This is an area that up until this past year has not been accessible to the public since Doris Duke closed River Road through her property in 1931.

From this point, the water flows under the road and into Snake Lake before returning to the Raritan River.
