A welcome reception with light refreshments will be held at 5:30 p.m. for all attendees.

Whether you were born and raised in Buffalo or moved here to enjoy our great city, how much do you really know about its history? What was Buffalo’s position on the world stage in 1900, and what really contributed to our growth? This dynamic presentation will look at the factors that led Buffalo to its role at the turn of the last century and how history helped propel our city into the one we love today. 
Join our keynote co-presenters:
  • Melissa Brown, Executive Director of the Buffalo History Museum
  • Doug Kohler, Erie County Historian and Clarence School Teacher
A lively panel presentation will follow with experts in Buffalo’s history taking the stage to discuss what they feel were the biggest contributors to making Buffalo the 8th largest city in the U.S during the last century:
  • Chris Hawley, Buffalo Urbanist and Preservationist
  • Mike Vogel, President, Buffalo Lighthouse Association
  • Steve Cichon, historian and author of BuffaloStories.com
The presenters will discuss how Buffalo’s location, its people and its industry helped the city achieve the status and recognition it received in the U.S. and throughout the world.
This will be a fun and fact-filled evening revisiting Buffalo’s past and its transformation into the city we all know and love today.
