It is wonderful to see that work is being done like this. I'm truely enjoying the new finds. It's must be fun to find a bit of history that was only written about
before hand. The joys of exploration and discovery, truley amazing!

Great history. I have seen the rock many times, and we learned the history of LaSalle and the Griffon all the way up through school in Niagara Falls. I'd love to see the Griffon found - it has to be someplace, right? - but after more than 300 years ... that's tough.
I can't believe I see a comment from Crystal Blessing. I think she was a year ahead of me at LaSalle and I haven't seen her in 40 years. Not everyone remembers that the LaSalle section of the city originally was a village of that name, and the downtown area was centered at 86th Street and Buffalo Avenue. The village was annexed by the City of Niagara Falls in 1927. The original high school, at 76th Street and Buffalo Avenue, is still standing and is now LaSalle Middle School. Our high school, built in 1957 on Military Road, was a victim of consolidation and has been torn down. I walked through the high school a year or two before it was wrecked, this was maybe in 2000, and it appeared as nice - all that marble, stone and glass - as it did the day it opened. My father coached football there, and all my eight brothers and sisters graduated from the school. I'm still angry they did away with it.
Well, I hope you all do find the Griffon.

Hello John,

Thank you for the wonderful history regarding the village of LaSalle, the high school and your dad. I was back for a brief visit last month and it was very sad to see the rubble that was once our high school. I am very optimistic that the current ship under exploration off the eastern coastal waters of Wisconsin might be the Griffon. This summer, more underwater exploration and artifacts for identification will be retrieved from this shipwreck. Thank you for your wonderful post!

Best regards,

I love reading history of LaSalle. I am 34 years old and still living in LaSalle. I have considered moving many times, but I love my neighbors, and my home. I recently began an effort to annex LaSalle back to the Town of Niagara. I thought you may be interested in knowing some of us are still here fighting for the area. It would be amazing if the Griffon were found after all of these years!! Keep up the great work.

I grew up on Cayuga Island and am a member of the Class of 1961 at LaSalle. The marker concerning the Griffon is actually located about 1/4 mile upstream from the mouth of Cayuga Creek. I have always wondered if any artifacts connected to the construction of the Griffon have ever been found. I have also wondered if Cayuga Island was of any significance to the Indians before the area was settled. It seems that the Island could have been a burial ground, but I have never uncovered any information about this. If anyone can offer information in these areas, please contact me at constable1529@yahoo.com

Personally, I don't believe they found the Griffon...you don't just walk around on the bottom with your arms out and find a shipwreck?
The whole thing looks like a fundraising hoax...
