Will speak about The Roycroft Inn
September 16, 2018
The Roycroft Campus, the Roycroft way of life and it's story,
began in 1897 with Elbert Hubbard,
legendary man of vision, who founded the American Arts
Crafts Movement in East Aurora, NY. For more than 20 years,
Roycroft Campus was a center of entrepreneurship, creativity and
was a hub of activity with over five hundred working artisans
drawing visitors from faraway places.
In 1905 the Roycroft Inn was opened to accommodate visitors
and artisans looking to experience
this emerging community and style. Prior to being an
inn, it was the original print shop on the campus.
The inn became a center of activity for this
community. In 1986, The Roycroft Inn,
as part of the Roycroft Campus, received National Historic
Over a nine year period, with support from the Margaret L.
the inn meticulously underwent an $8 million dollar
to return it to it's original splendor. It was reopened for
guests in 1995.
Join Roycroft enthusiast Sandy
Starks as she takes you on a little journey
about the history of the ever
popular Roycroft Inn and

the people connected to it ... then and now.

Will speak about the Buffalo Central Terminal
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!
