Centennial Commissioners accessdate October 22, 2011 Celestine crystals are found in some geodes. The world's largest known geode, a celestine geode 35 feet (10.7 m) in diameter at its widest point, is located near the village of Put-in-Bay, Ohio, on South Bass Island in Lake Erie. The geode has been converted into a viewing cave, Crystal Cave (Crystal Cave (Ohio)), with the crystals which once composed the floor of the geode removed. The geode has celestine

It is known as Crystal Cave (Crystal Cave (Ohio)), and tours are possible during the summer. In 1967, Iowa designated the geode as the official state rock, and it has a Geode State Park.

and commercial development in the past few years. Garrison Road (Niagara Regional Road 3) is the town's commercial corridor, stretching east to west through Fort Erie. Fort Erie is also home to a number of other commercial core areas (Bridgeburg, Ridgeway (Ridgeway, Ontario), Stevensville and Crystal Beach) as a result of the 1970 amalgamation of Bertie Township and the village of Crystal Beach with Fort Erie. Geography Fort Erie is generally flat, but there are low sand hills, varying

in height from 2 to 15 metres, along the shore of Lake Erie, and a limestone ridge extends from Point Abino to near Miller's Creek, giving Ridgeway its name. The soil is shallow, with a clay subsoil. The town's beaches on Lake Erie, most notably Erie Beach, Crystal Beach (Crystal Beach, Ontario) and Bay Beach, are considered the best in the area and draw many weekend visitors from the Toronto and Buffalo areas. While summers are enjoyable, winters can occasionally be fierce, with many

snowstorms, whiteouts and winds whipping off Lake Erie. Communities In addition to the primary urban core of Fort Erie, the town also contains the neighbourhoods of Black Creek, Bridgeburg NorthEnd Victoria, Crescent Park, Crystal Beach (Crystal Beach, Ontario), Point Abino, Ridgeway, Snyder, and Stevensville (Stevensville, Ontario). Smaller and historical neighbourhoods include Amigari Downs, Bay Beach, Buffalo Heights, Douglastown, Edgewood Park, Erie Beach, Garrison Village, Mulgrave

Completed

in 1858, it was located south of the Provincial Lunatic Asylum, northwest of King and Shaw Streets. It was dismantled in 1878, and the ironwork was used to construct a new Crystal Palace on what would later become the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) grounds. The second Crystal Palace hosted Toronto's first Industrial Exhibition (the predecessor to the Canadian National Exhibition) in 1879. By the time it was destroyed in 1906 by fire, it was officially known as the CNE Transportation Building

The finest specimens of all were found at the Tsumeb Mine in Tsumeb, Namibia.

Also built was the Crystal Springs Bleachery and Dying Company, which brought millhousing to a small area of the village, and employed many from town and neighboring Fall River (Fall River, Massachusetts), also known for industry. North Church (1809), Town Hall (1888), and the Guilford H. Hathaway Library (1895) were all constructed in the same

Most of its mills closed during this period, following the Second World War. The N. R.
