Construction of the Skylon began in May 1964. The tower was opened on October 6, 1965 by New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and Ontario Premier John Robarts. Costing $7 million at the time of its construction, the Skylon Tower was owned by a private partnership called Niagara International Centre, which was financed by The Hershey Companyshareholdings of Charles Richard Reese, former co-owner of the H. B. Reese Candy Company of Hershey, Pennsylvania. Canadian Pacific Hotelswas hired to operate the tower restaurants and lounges.

On October 1, 1975, CP purchased the tower from Mr. Reese and his partners for $11 million. The tower's summit features a verdigris-green copper roof similar to CP's other properties, including the Château Frontenac in Quebec Cityand the Banff Springs Hotel in Banff, Alberta. CP owned and operated the tower until 1986, when it was sold for $18 million to two local Niagara hotel owners, John Gruyich of Michael's Inn and George Yerich of the Holiday Inn By The Falls Motel. In 1988, George Yerich bought out John Gruyich's ownership share of the Skylon for $13 million, however Milicent Gruyich continues to own the land underneath the Skylon. Mr. Yerich's Skylon land lease will expire in 2064, at which time the Skylon Tower will revert to total ownership by the heirs of Milicent Gruyich. .

Seeing the falls on TV, or video and pictures are one thing. But being in the presence of this amazing wonder can leave a person speechless! I've wanted to go to the Falls every since I first saw Superman II when Clark took Lois. It took me longer than I expected but I'm finally able to scratch it off my bucket list. ✏️✅

Irony .... So evidently while I was going up in the CN Tower on Friday the Toronto Blue Jay's were playing the Phillies and I didn't even know it. But who else got a view like this that loves the Phillies? IDK but we lost 2-4. Salut to the Blue Jay's! I've always liked Toronto cause they are not a threat to our division and their jerseys are fly as hell! I found out when I went to check the Phillies score and saw that they had played the Blue Jays ....mind blown! That the first time I have ever been in Toronto and my home team was there as well. Couldn't have planned it out better unless I actually planned it out. The Phillies did however break the Blue Jays 5 game winning streak on Sunday the 26th. With a final of 8-3 #gophillies
