About this spot
Virginia Cascades drops 60 feet (18 m) on the Gibbon River. The road you are on is the old road between Canon and Norris. The old road took tourists to this spot, which became popular. When the Park Service built the new road, they kept this stretch of the old road to provide a means for seeing this popular attraction.

Ed Lamartine was the foreman of the original road crew and he named the waterfall after Virginia Gibson, the wife of Charles Gibson, the head of the Yellowstone Park Association that ran the concessions in the park at the time.
