We all love celebrating Thanksgiving.
Here are some interesting facts about our beloved holiday.
The first American Thanksgiving was held by approximately
50 Plymouth pilgrims and approximately 90 neighboring
Wampanoag Indians (Native Americans)
in Autumn of 1621 in Massachusetts.
Thanksgiving celebrations were
pretty sporadic and random after that.
The first Thanksgiving feast lasted an entire 3 days.
In 1777 to 1783, the US Congress proclaimed Thanksgiving an annual celebration to be held each December.
Thanksgiving as a national holiday finally stuck when Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a national holiday to be held the last Thursday in November...but this was never signed as a law. It wasn't until President Roosevelt signed a bill in 1941 sanctifying Thanksgiving as the 4th Thursday of every November as a national public holiday.
Three towns in the U.S. take their name from the traditional Thanksgiving bird, including Turkey, Texas (pop. 465); Turkey Creek, Louisiana (pop. 363); and Turkey, North Carolina (pop. 270).

De Veaux Woods State Park
One of the only old growth forests in an urban setting in the United States. Fall is the perfect time to take a step back in time and see what Niagara Falls looked like before settled.
This old-growth forest is home to white, red, and black oak trees.
The oldest tree in De Veaux Woods State Park is around 315 years old.
DeVeaux Woods is located along the Niagara River Corridor
and is recognized by the National Audubon Important Bird Area.
This site was adopted by both the Canadian and the American IBA,
making it the first international IBA site in the world.
History buffs would love to see the stone buildings left behind
from the old DeVeaux College for Orphans and Destitute Children
once located there.
It truly is a gem found only in Niagara Falls, NY. So take in the all the fall colors at De Veaux State Park. And after a perfect day of nature walks and bird watching. Refresh yourself with a delicious meal at the Red Coach Inn. Or warm up by our fireplace with an espresso or cappuccino.
