Delaware Avenue's northern section was predominately farmland throughout much of the nineteenth century, but began to be developed as family estates. Discover how some of Buffalo's wealthiest families came to dominate this section of Delaware Avenue in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. While many of their former homes remain, most have been reused by businesses and institutions. Join us on this walking tour of one of Buffalo's most beautiful streets to admire classic homes of the Gilded Age and learn about the families who built them.
