An ancient attraction
Similar to countless other natural landmarks, Niagara Falls is rich in history. The falls developed around 10,000 years ago through natural means. Flowing water carved through rock and dirt, creating three river forks that drop down more than 100 feet.
As large glaciers melted, an increasing body of water went cascading down these falls to create large basins. Over time, the water steadily eroded rock and other materials. Eventually, the river’s rocks became what they are today. The three waterfalls of Niagara Falls are Horseshoe Falls, American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls.
