Presidents in Buffalo Downtown Walking Tour

October 12, 2021 @ 10:00 am

Tuesday, October 12th at 10am, Explore Buffalo invites you to the Presidents in Buffalo Downtown Walking Tour. The home of two presidents, Millard Fillmore and Grover Cleveland, Buffalo has also played host to many American presidents for important speeches and other occasions, the most infamous being President McKinley’s visit to the Pan-American Exposition in 1901 that ended tragically with his assassination. Some of the presidential stories in Buffalo are often told, while others are less widely known. Join us on this walking tour to learn about presidents who are prominent in Buffalo history, particularly Millard Fillmore, Abraham Lincoln, Grover Cleveland, William McKinley, and Theodore Roosevelt.
