BuffaloHistory is an Internet mailing list intended for discussion of the history of the Buffalo, New York metropolitan area.
Buffalo is a city with a wealth of history. From the early French settlement of Joncaire, the burning of the village by the British during the War of 1812, and the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825, Buffalo's history rolls forward like a richly woven tapestry.
Despite the vital role that it played in the opening of the west and in the settlement of the country, Buffalo's history is often under-appreciated and neglected, and frequently buried beneath a veneer of surface parking lots, industrial decay and big box drugstores.
Discussion and announcements regarding local history, genealogy, folklore, historic preservation, research, libraries, archives, etc. related specifically to the Buffalo, New York metropolitan area are appropriate to this list. Memories of life in Buffalo, of weather, people, businesses, stores, restaurants, and, of course, food are also appropriate.
