Founding of the city of Ararat on Grand Island-by Mordecai M. Noah: Read before the society, March 5, 1866

Founding of the city of Ararat on Grand Island-by Mordecai M. Noah: Read before the society, March 5, 1866 - Lewis Falley Allen This little pamplet tells the fascinating history of Grand Island, NY - a little island in the Niagara River, which in the mid 19th century was being groomed to be a sort of North American Jewish homeland. It boggles the mind to think of how differently the 20th century might have played out if the project had achieved its goals. There is some unrelated history in here as well, about how Grand Island supplied lumber to the French navy during the French-Indian War.
