Niagara Falls is a group of three waterfalls at the southern end of Niagara Gorge, between the Canadian province of Ontario and the US state of New York.

Annie Edson Taylor was born on October 24, 1838, in Auburn, New York.

Her motives to be the first person to ride over Niagara Falls in a barrel were financial but she never made much money from her adventure.
