Richard Panicali. The property the barn is currently residing on is up for sale.

Physical Description

Wood frame barn.

Current Condition


  • Designed by Calvert Vaux and built (1875-1876) when the park system was created by Olmsted and Vaux.
  • The last remaining building in the park system designed by Calvert Vaux; the only Calvert Vaux building in Buffalo.
  • Moved from the park to private land in the 1890s.

Recent Events and Actions Taken

  • The Olmsted Parks Conservancy would like to acquire and move the barn back to the park where it was originally sited (Martin Luther King Jr.), where it will be a working building, part of the greenhouse complex.
  • Estimated cost to purchase, move, renovate and restore other portions of the barn is $565,000.
  • Money is very tight for the Conservancy at this time, so support and leadership from an independent group is the likeliest short-term approach.
