Experiencing History with You!
An inspired group of history makers founded The Buffalo History Museum (TBHM) in 1862. They assembled a unique collection of regional paintings, photographs, artifacts, and manuscripts to share with researchers and the public. To accommodate the organization’s rapid growth more space was needed. An ideal opportunity for a new, larger space presented itself during planning for the great exposition at the turn of the 19th century. Local architect George Cary designed the New York State Building, host for the 1901 Pan-American Exposition which was to remain as a permanent home for local history. With the enlarged space, TBHM’s mission expanded and exhibitions emerged as a priority.
