    We served as the local host for the 2011 National Preservation Conference which attracted 2,547 registrants, the most in the Conference's 65-year history.  This success was made possible by a large number of organizations through the region and thousands of local volunteers.  The public, as well as the registrants, enjoyed a wide variety of events, lectures, walks, tours, educational session and events.  The conference also produced high praise to Buffalo and the region's unique and significant architectural heritage.

    • PBN Statement on the Episcopal Church Home Demolition

      July 31, 2014

      An item was filed with the City of Buffalo Common Council regarding the Episcopal Church Home at 24 Rhode Island Street. That filing was in relation to a June 30, 2014 Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) document that informed “involved agencies” of ESDC’s Determination of No Significant Adverse Effect on the environment of an abatement, demolition, and stabilization project for the site. It was received as an informational item requiring no action and filed at a special session of the Buffalo Common Council on July 29, 2014. Preservation Buffalo Niagara (PBN) has reviewed ESDC’s Determination of No Significant Effect on the Environment and other material necessary to provide its membership and the public with further information on the matter.
