Buffalo River History (and Future) Tour
Sunday, September 28th
The Department of History, in conjunction with the History Club, will be taking a
journey back in time to Buffalo's heyday when it was the start and end point of the
Erie Canal, and was the largest grain entrepôt in the world. Our guide, the Buffalo River History Tour company, will take us on a two hour tour by boat along the Buffalo River, offering
a unique view of the world's largest standing collection of grain elevators - the
"cathedrals" of the grain industry. Our tour also includes a stop at Silo City -
site of Buffalo's new annual City of Night arts festival - where we will get to explore inside an elevator.
