One of the earliest villages established on the Niagara frontier, Black Rock has a history all its own including its role in the War of 1812, the competition to be the terminus of the Erie Canal, site of one of the first railroad lines and spring-fed public water systems, and home to a variety of immigrant groups. Our tour includes walking across the International Railroad Bridge to see the Black Rock Lock and a stroll through the area’s residential streets to view some of the oldest housing stock in the City.
Meet at Market Square Park, at the corner of Niagara and Amherst Streets. Street parking is available on the surrounding streets.
