ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Niagara Falls State Park which celebrated its 125-year anniversary in 2010. Known for hydroelectric power and their natural beauty, the falls were saved from purely commercial and industrial use by the Free Niagara movement in the late 1860s. The group, led by artist Frederic Edwin Church, landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted and architect Henry Hobson Richardson, worked to save the falls' natural environment. Their efforts led to the 1885 Niagara Reservation bill which created the Niagara Falls State Park.
