History

Recent Events and Actions Taken

  • Demolition is imminent, according to Bernice Radle of Buffalo Young Preservationists.
  • Buffalo's Young Preservationists: "This single family house is in great shape and has a ton of original character. This house has original hardwood trim, floors, doors - you name it, this one has it; it's a real historic gem. This house is currently threatened with demolition by its current owner who has neglected the property for years. During our visit to the property we met a neighbor who explained her frustrating one year long attempt to purchase the house. The current owner has rejected all offers and is convinced that demolishing the property is the only alternative. This of course is a very common problem. However, it is not too late! BYP aims to market this property and is willing to work with interested buyers and connect them with the city and the owner to keep this historic house old of the landfill." February 2013.
  • September 13, 2013 - Demolished.
