Walking Tour of Buffalo 2006: The Voyage of the "Dawn Treader"

Let No Man Scare You

Lately there has been an organized effort to memorialize Buffalo's abolition/civil rights movement. While still in the development stage, prospects look promising.

The Michigan Avenue Baptist Church

It may not look like much now, but for countless numbers of people this was the last stop on the Underground Railroad. The hiding place still exists inside (it wasn't open the day of the picture).

Reverend for over sixty years, Dr. Nash lived at this house on what is now Nash Street. It is currently being converted into a museum and park.

This building is nearby.

I'm not totally sure, but I think this old lyceum used to house the Albright Gallery in the 1800s. Either way it's a pretty cool building.
