Buffalo Whirlwind Tour


Jun 30, 2018 to Sep 30, 2018
10:00 AM until 11:30 AM

This event occurs weekly, on Sunday and Saturday.


This is the famous and pioneering 90-minute tour given by passionate experts of The Campaign for Greater Buffalo History, Architecture & Culture to visiting reporters, architecture critics, travel writers, and students aboard its very own Open-Air autobus. Tours help raise funds for historic preservation in Buffalo.

You’ll see scores of beautiful buildings and houses by prominent national and international architects and the streets and neighborhoods where Buffalonians carry on their everyday lives.

The start is the foundation of modern Buffalo, and modern urban America: The building and grounds of what was the Buffalo State Hospital, designed by H.H. Richardson and Frederick Law Olmsted, conceived in 1870. We end with the Heath House by Frank Lloyd Wright of 1904. In between, you’ll see world-altering industrial architecture, the preening mansions of Delaware Avenue,  and the prototype for the skyscraper, Sullivan’s Guaranty Building.
