The Discover Niagara Shuttle is an initiative of the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area. The Niagara Falls National Heritage Area served as the catalyst engaging Niagara County partners and stakeholders in developing a comprehensive transportation network that connects visitors and residents with the natural, cultural and historic assets within the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area.

On October 13, 1812, the United States invaded Canada. Lewiston was the staging area for the Battle of Queenston Heights, the first major battle of the War of 1812. Cannons installed on the lawn of Barton Hill were aimed at the village of Queenston, across the Niagara River in Canada. Troops were quartered on Major Barton's property as well.
