Buffalo's Future Event

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? In 1900, Buffalo was the 8th largest city in the U.S. and the 6th busiest water port in the world.

Join us for this presentation on how Buffalo earned its place on the world stage in 1900. This intriguing look at our past will include discussion on the factors that helped us earn our place in U.S. history.

Join our keynote co-presenters who will look at the factors that contributed to Buffalo’s growth and how history helped propel our city into the one we love today:

  • Melissa Brown, Executive Director of the Buffalo History Museum

  • Doug Kohler, Erie County Historian and Clarence School Teacher

They will discuss how we got to where we are today and what factors helped get us there.

Experts in Buffalo’s history will then take the stage to discuss 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:

  • Chris Hawley, Buffalo Urbanist and Preservationist

  • Mike Vogel, President, Buffalo Lighthouse Association
