Buffalo & Erie County Historical Society Collections

War of 1812 Collection



About Us:
The Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society, founded in 1862, is located in the Delaware Park area of Buffalo, NY.  Collections highlights include Pan-American Exposition artifacts, the Red Jacket Peace Medal, the Pierce Motorette (an early motor vehicle), and prototype pacemakers, among the 80,000-plus items in our care. Sketches and paintings chronicle two centuries of growth of the city of Buffalo and surrounding land, and portraiture ranges from Peter Porter, one time Secretary of War, to Presidents Grover Cleveland, and Millard Fillmore.

The Research Library and Archives collections document the history of the City of Buffalo and the surrounding region. Subjects of special interest include Native Americans in Western New York, settlement of Western New York, the War of 1812, and local regiments in the Civil War, the Erie Canal, Niagara Falls, the Pan-American Exposition, and local businesses.
