Hot 5: North Tonawanda Historic Treasures Tour



The North Tonawanda History Museum is always busy, and always creating new local traditions. Case in point, the fourth biannual Historic Treasures Tour on September 10. Participating homes include the Farny R. Wurlitzer mansion and a former residence of members of the Rand and Miner families. There will also be a minicultural tour from 9 a.m. to noon that will include the historic 1926 Leon H. Lempart & Son-designed Riviera Theatre & Performing Arts Center building, the 1929 E. B. Green-designed Buffalo Suzuki Strings Musical Arts Center building, and the 1903 E. E. Joralemon-designed Carnegie Art Center building. The day will also include carriage rides, another nice touch bringing to mind another era in NT history.

6 p.m. on Saturday, September 10; tickets can be purchased at the North Tonawanda History Museum, 54 Webster St., North Tonawanda, or by calling 213-0554; www.nthistorymuseum.org.
