Aug 19, 2004 - Niagara Wax Museum

Niagara Wax Museum of History: Lincoln's Haircut Chair Many of the exhibits in the Niagara Wax Museum of History date from its opening in 1968 -- roughly the same time that the city of Niagara Falls, New York, bulldozed most of its tourist district in an ill-fated attempt at urban renewal. Some may find the museum's vintage unappealing; we think it's great. Over on the busy bee Canadian side of the Falls nothing would've lasted this long, but here it's safely frozen in time (it's a history museum, after all) offering a view of Niagara Falls...

History of America’s Oldest State Park An American Original: Niagara Falls State Park America’s oldest state park, Niagara Falls State Park stands today as an American icon and enduring legacy of the visionaries who worked to save it for generations to come. Today, the park’s signature attraction, majestic Niagara Falls, is the dramatic apex of the free-flowing waters of the Niagara River Gorge. It wasn’t always so. During the Industrial Revolution of the early 19th Century, the natural beauty of Niagara Falls began to suffer as earnest...

I've been in Niagara for nearly a week now and today I'm heading on to Toronto. I've really enjoyed my relazing week here. The hostel is nice and quiet - run by an old couple from Manchester.

Finally, we are out of the state of Ohio -- thought we were going to be there forever!! Felt like we were in a whirlpool, waiting to be spit out! Briefly hurled through Pennsylvania on our way to upstate NY. Of course our first stop had to be Niagara Falls. Kind of a grimy little town everywhere except right at the Falls area. Had we known, we definitely would have stayed on the Canada side -- I think the exchange rate has killed the American side tourist trade. All the nice hotels and the best views are from the Canadian side. Each time...

My husband attended a chemical engineering convention in Buffalo, New York, and I was allowed to accompany him. On this trip I experienced several firsts: train ride, airplane flight and crossing the USA border into a foreign country. We had originally planned to go by train all the way from Carlsbad, New Mexico to Buffalo but had to make some major changes in our travel plans. There was a train derailment between Carlsbad and Roswell, which delayed our arrival in Roswell by about nine hours! That was much too late to make connections with...
