Medina High School Teacher Brings History to Life

Medina High School Teacher Brings History to Life

US History teacher Pierson Bell has a very unusual way to bring history to life to his students at Medina High School, he comes dressed to class as a British soldier.  “I am a Revolutionary War re-enactor and belong to a British regiment headquartered out of Rochester,” he says.  “I got into it as a hobby when I was in graduate school at William and Mary, which is located in Colonial Williamsburg, the 18th century living history museum.”

Hamister Project In Niagara Falls May Open In 2016


NIAGARA FALLS, NY - Construction of a multi use project including a hotel, which is being developed by the Hamister Group, won't begin until 2015, with the planned opening now set for 2016.

That is one year later than forecasted when, in September 2013, Governor Cuomo announced he had personally intervened to end a stalemate that threatened to derail the project.

The project, which includes $2.75 million in public financing, is scheduled to rise on Rainbow Boulevard, on what was the last undeveloped parcel from the Cataract City's urban development movement in the mid 1970's, and has historically been referred to as "Parcel 4".

Though construction was planned for 2014, the site remains a parking lot. Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster attributed the current delay largely to the Hamister Group having re-flagged the hotel from a Hilton Garden Hotel to a Hyatt Place instead.
