It’s the Cascade District – Plus! This year we’re getting you inside one-of-a-kind adapted spaces in the Cascade District (like the newly rehabbed Bridge Square and the Knowlton Building) plus a few nearby buildings we just couldn’t pass up–the Academy Building on S. Fitzhugh Street and the mid-century modern former bank building at 44 Exchange.

Return to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Buffalo

Darwin Martin House Complex. Photo courtesy Biff Henrich.

We had such a demand for the June trip we’re not going to make you wait a year to see the iconic Darwin Martin House Complex in Buffalo, the bucolic Graycliff, overlooking Lake Erie, or the home of the American Arts and Crafts movement, The Roycroft Inn, in East Aurora.

Registration includes comfortable motorcoach transportation, all tours and admission fees, luncheon at the Roycroft Inn, and the company of our executive director and staff escort. No extra charge for the oooohs and ahhhs. Fee per person: $135 for Landmark Members $160 for nonmembers.

This day trip will take place Friday, October 11, 2013.

Visit our website for registration details.

African-American Landmarks Listening Session

Made possible by a grant from the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council and the New York State Council on the Arts, this project aims to identify landmarks that are significant to Rochester’s African-American community, and to help those that are endangered to qualify for tax credits or spark interest in their preservation or reuse.

We are looking for places where African Americans have lived, worked, and raised a family; the location where an important event took place; the home of someone who was special somehow. A park, a school, a corner store, any place that you remember that was important to you at some time in your life.
