Broadway Historic District Tour

On August 20th, Preservation Buffalo Niagara (PBN) hosted a tour of Lancaster’s Broadway Historic District. The Broadway Historic District was selected by PBN as part of the Preservation Passport tour program. This program focuses on helping tourgoers discover the region’s National Register Historic Districts in all of their varied and distinctive importance. The tour highlighted both the stories of the people who commissioned homes along Broadway and the broad range of architectural styles represented along Broadway. The Historic District encompasses 85 contributing buildings built between about 1831 and 1940. The lively tour highlighted the men and women who built and occupied the homes along Broadway, many of whom sought refuge in the relatively rural setting of Lancaster, while still maintaining their connections to their businesses in the city of Buffalo. In some cases during the tour local homeowners also joined, offering further details on the history and construction of their homes. A representative of the Lancaster Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) attended the tour to provide additional information on the importance of preservation of these historic buildings and the significance of having a protected district.
