[[Category:Niagara Falls, Canada: A Wiki]] on the page before you save it to make it part of the Niagara Falls, Canada: A Wiki wiki (preload can be enabled to automate this task, by clicking this link and saving that page. Afterwards, you may need to purge this page, if you still see this message).
This wiki will evolve in the coming weeks & months into what is hoped to be one of the most extensive and widely-viewed sites on the web detailing the city of Niagara Falls, Canada and the rich history it has made since Father Louis Hennepin made the first notation of the cataract in 1678.
Please bear the anticipated time it will take in order to get this wiki started.
This is not in any particular order as of yet. Any outside help or suggestions are, of course, welcome.
