Annie Edson Taylor’s Wild Ride — 2 Comments

  1. Thanks for this article Larry. I grew up in Niagara Falls and the legends and tales of the people who dared to defy the Falls were numerous. I knew about Annie Edison Taylor but I didn’t realize she was a retired teacher. Somehow it makes more sense now!
    Do you know about the time they turned off the Falls? That’s an interesting story as well.

    • Thanks, Nell. I guess teacher pensions were non-existent at the time leading to quite a desperate move on Taylor’s part. I didn’t realize that you grew up in Niagara Falls. Now I know who to tap for future info.
