Duke-Hillsborough-Home-REPORTER ANNE RAVER-The "Great Falls", a Buck Duke a man-made fountain, is operated by a remote control, on the 2,740 acre Duke Estate in Hillsborough, NJ on Friday May 2, 2008. "If we let this run all day," said employee Chris Thompson, "it could easily drain the resevoir." Ducks, golden eagles, osprey and blue heron are one of the many wonderful sights present on the Duke Farm. The estate is undergoing a face lift prior to the opening to the public in 2010. Buck Duke diverted water from the Raritan River to the highest point on his property. He then let the water, with a little guidence, fall where it may. The water was then recycled back to the Raritan cleaner then when first pumped. Jane Therese For The New York Times
