From its founding, Buffalo has been a community of ambitious builders who have strived to build the city in such a way as to leave a legacy that future generations can take pride in.

When Joseph Ellicott arrived here in 1804 as the agent of the Holland Land Company, he laid out a radial street plan befitting a much larger and grander city than Buffalo was at the time.

The city that developed along those streets is one that all citizens of Buffalo can and should be proud of, as it is a true architectural museum of America through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Explore Buffalo, the largest guided tour organization in Buffalo, offers a variety of ways to discover this treasure trove of historic architecture, with tours led by volunteer docents by foot, bike, bus, and kayak.
