Greenway funds approved for move of Falls’ stone chimney

From the Buffalo News:

A 60-ton stone chimney, all that remains of a French-built fort near Niagara Falls, is to be moved to a new home this summer, with $200,000 in Niagara River Greenway funding paying for the project.

The Host Communities Standing Committee, which holds the purse strings for Greenway funds in Niagara County, unanimously approved the allocation Tuesday in a meeting at the Niagara County Industrial Development Agency offices.

Its attorney, Stanley Widger, said the funding is contingent on approval of the move Monday by the Falls City Council. The chimney is city property.
