Les Chutes du $5

For many years, people thought these falls on Quebec’s Batiscan river were the very same ones printed on the Canadian $5 banknotes that were issued back in 1954. Unfortunately, it isn’t actually true.

The waterfall’s real name is Fall of Nine because it was the ninth port settlers reached while traveling up river. But that didn’t stop the site from becoming best known as Les Chutes du $5, or “Waterfall of the $5 Bill.”
