History

This travel diary was written by an anonymous author who traveled from Albany to Fort Erie and Buffalo, and finally to Niagara Falls, in the summer of 1815. The writer traveled by wagon, ferry, and raft, and explored the terrain on both the Canadian and American sides of the falls at a time when this was not yet a popular tourist attraction.
