Learn about the rich heritage of the historic Village of LaSalle, once a separate municipality from the City of Niagara Falls. This year is the 125th Anniversary of the City of Niagara Falls, the 110th Anniversary of the founding of the Village of LaSalle in the Town of Niagara and the 90th Anniversary of the annexation of the Village into the City of Niagara Falls. The talk by noted LaSalle historian Teresa Lasher Winslow will be illustrated by photos of the Village of LaSalle’s houses, maps and annexation materials. Please bring your photos, memorabilia and memories to share and add to the historical records being assembled.

The flow of water was stopped completely over both falls on March 29th 1848 due to an ice jam in the upper river for several hours. This is the only known time to have occurred. The Falls did not actually freeze over, but the flow was stopped to the point where people actually walked out and recovered artifacts from the riverbed!
