At the turn of the twentieth century, Buffalo had grown to become the eighth largest city in America. The wealth generated by commerce and industry enabled the city’s businesses, organizations, and citizens to hire some of the nation’s most prominent architects and use the finest materials available.

On this downtown (fully outdoors) walking tour, see signature works by some of America’s greatest architects, including the Guaranty Building by Louis Sullivan & Dankmar Adler, the Ellicott Square Building by Daniel Burnham & Co., and St. Paul’s Cathedral by Richard Upjohn. Learn about the prominence of Buffalo on a national scale at the turn of the twentieth century while admiring buildings such as the Old Post Office, St. Joseph’s Cathedral, and Old County Hall. Be sure to bring your camera for some great photo opportunities! 

Tour meets inside the lobby of the Hotel @ The Lafayette (corner of Clonton & Lafayette Square).  Reservations required for all tours.
