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.
