SAVE THE DATE!!
Dates are important in history...
December 7, 1941, July 4, 1776, January 10, 1943,
and November 22, 1963 are just a few examples,
and there are many more. Well, there is another date that will
be going down in history,
June 03, 2018!
That day will be the historic event of the
Lancaster Historical Society and the Hull Family Farm joining
for the first time for a picnic on the Hull Farm
estate. Things are just in the planning stages right now,
but it promises to be a great time. There will be
family games with plenty of food to eat.
So circle the date on your calendar and stay
tuned for details, and we promise the snow will be gone by then.

Will speak about the Buffalo Central
TO BE RESCHEDULED
If you grew up before
the 1960’s the Buffalo Central Terminal should have
a special place in your life. Its huge concourse,
the famed stuffed buffalo, and the clock kiosk were
only small parts of the New York Central Terminal on
the east side of Buffalo built in 1929
For our April 15th
program we are privileged to have Mark Lewandowski
of the Central Terminal Restoration Corporation come
to speak to us about the on-going efforts to
preserve this beautiful Art Deco building.
Architects throughout the world recognize the
building as one of the most prominent in the Art
I am sure
Mr. Lewandowski will provide you with the
corporation’s efforts to revive and re-purpose the
terminal and make it a prominent part of the
re-birth of the East Side of Buffalo, especially now
with Buffalo experiencing a renaissance. Photos and
other displays will be available for your viewing.
This will prove to be a most interesting program so
mark your calendar now!
