Buffalo City Hall:
Americanesque Masterpiece

Preservation Buffalo Niagara is thrilled to announce the re-release of Buffalo City Hall: Americanesque Masterpiece.

Buffalo City Hall: Americanesque Masterpiece was first produced in 1993 by the Landmark Society of the Niagara Frontier (which subsequently became Preservation Buffalo Niagara), originally authored by John Conlin and including original photography by Biff Heinrich to coincide with an exhibition at the Burchfield Penny Art Center entitled “Buffalo’s City Hall: The Politics of Architecture and Design.”

This new version has been updated and edited by Preservation Buffalo Niagara to include new information and additional citations, along with additional historic images, and new original photography. Design services were provided by White Bicycle. A special debt of gratitude belongs to Jodi Lynn Maracle for her assistance in properly identifying and describing the Indigenous imagery and symbolism of the building. 

Finally, this new publication would not have been possible without the financial support of the Charles D. and Mary A. Bauer Foundation.

Online orders for this book have ended. BUT, you can visit Talking Leaves or Fitz Books to buy a copy.

You can learn more about this book by watching a recording of our virtual event: Complicating Our Relationship with Place featuring Jodi Lynn Maracle.
