History

History

Buffalo History New York

Buffalo is located on the western side of New York and was burned twice in its past- once in 1759, by the British, and again in 1813, also by the British. It sounds like the British didn’t want Buffalo to succeed. It was during those tumultuous years that Buffalo was a trading post, which was abandoned once it was burned and later served as military headquarters. After being burned a second time, it simply became a village. It wasn’t until 1825 that trading with the west and the completion of the Erie Canal brought a boost to the economy and the population. In the controversial time of the Civil War that railroads were being built in a hurry as Buffalo was developed with shipyards, iron, and steel mills, meat-packing plants, flour mills and railroad cars, just to name a few. The economy grew even bigger with the harnessing of the incredible Niagara water. It was said that Buffalo was home to two United States Presidents- Millard Fillmore and Grover Cleveland. In 1901, when President William McKinley was visiting Buffalo to view the Pan-American Expo, he was assassinated and Theodore Roosevelt took an oath to become the next President. This oath took place in what has become known as the Ansley Wilcox Mansion, which is now a museum and a must-see. In today’s contemporary times, trade and government employees make up a large share of Buffalo's economy. However, it is also known for its chief manufacturing plants: auto parts, chemicals, plastics, medical supplies, machine tools, pharmaceuticals, and wood products. You can see that Buffalo is an epic and thriving city, and also includes several colleges and universities and a center for medical research, too. When you hear the word Buffalo, you tend to picture Niagara Falls, but that is not only what Buffalo is known for. It is the Niagara River that serves not only as a drainage outlet for the four upper Great Lakes, but as a partial boundary between New York and Canada. The river also serves as one of North America’s best hydroelectric power plants. No one knows for sure how Buffalo got its name. Some say it was because the animal buffalo drank out of the creek but early settlers wouldn’t have known about them. The closest that can be surmised is that the Indians named as the Indians were famous for naming themselves after animals. There is a story about a Captain Daniel Dobbins, who told the amazing tale in which the Indian who named the river resembled a large buffalo, with a large square frame, stooped shoulders and a large bushy head. Yet again, it was surmised that the French named the creek and the translation left something to be desired. However Buffalo River got its name, it is a breathtaking place.

Location

Buffalo is surrounded by water on the north side by Niagara Falls (which also serves as a boundary between New York and Canada), on the west side by Lake Erie, and on the south side by Niagara River. When it comes to “dividing” Buffalo, it can be done in roughly five areas of Central, East, North, South, and West, with Central Buffalo being the business hub. You will find that East Buffalo is home to a lot of the population. Also, North Buffalo is closest to the town hub so you will find young families and professionals congregating there. That leaves both West and South Buffalo as being the smallest population-wise and home of the artistic side, respectfully.

It was discovered in a 2022 census that Buffalo, while laying claim to being the second biggest city in New York, had declined. It is still large, with a population of 253,793. There is land to be had in Buffalo, some of the prettiest around. During the 1950s, Buffalo was boasted to be the 15th largest city in the country, due to being a part of the booming industries.
Buffalo first started as a trading post and community in 1789, and quickly grew during the construction of the Erie Canal. Becoming a railroad hub by 1900, Buffalo quickly expanded further.
