Lewiston Fish Creek Falls, before 1960

Before the Robert Moses Parkway (now Niagara Scenic Parkway) was built before 1960, Lewiston had its own falls. On the left you can see Fish Creek falls. Fish Creek ran through the Niagara Falls Country Club golf course, and still does. However, when the parkway was built, an artificial cuivert was constructed and the falls disappeared. On the upper right, you can see the homes on Ft. Gray Drive. There are a number of caves and water cascades in the area. This photo and descriptions were provided by Scott Ensminger from North Tonawanda, Niagara County's foremost authority on local falls and caves. (Please note the gorge can be extremely dangerous. Do not go exploring off the trails unless you are highly trained and experienced.)
