Buffalo River History Tours

Join us for a 90-minute narrated Buffalo River History Tour! Hear the story of the Erie Canal, Buffalo’s history as the largest grain port in the world and experience the nation’s largest collection of standing grain elevators from just a few feet away. Come travel along the waterway that made Buffalo one of the biggest and richest cities in the world while you gaze up at the magnificent structures that drove its growth. Hear the stories of Buffalo’s scoopers – residents and immigrants alike – who worked the docks and mills, feeding the nation and the city’s “gilded” economy. Join us for one of Buffalo’s most unique cultural experiences.
