A History Of Events And Happenings From Exactly One Hundred Years Ago

Postmarked August 22, 1912

The Buffalo Historical Society of New York was founded in 1862. The Society’s first president was Millard Fillmore. In 1901 a World’s Fair called the Pan-American Exposition was held in Buffalo. The New York State Building designed by George Cary and constructed of Vermont Marble. The Buffalo Historical Society moved into the building after the exposition closed and it is the only building that was kept intact.
