Parkside Historical Walking Tour this Saturday

On Saturday, September 10th, the PCA in conjunction with Buffalo Tours will offer another walking tour of Parkside, starting from the Church of the Good Shepherd at 10am.   $10 adults , $5 students.  

PCA Century Plaques

By now you've probably heard that Buffalo will be hosting the 2011 National Preservation Conference, schedule to run from October 19-22nd.  It's a chance for the City to shine in a national spotlight, and planners are hoping it will help rebrand Buffalo from the frozen tundra people expect to the wonderful place we know it to be.  A significant reason our city was chosen has to do with the $50 million renovation of the Darwin Martin House nearby, and we can expect  a good amount of attention to be paid to Parkside as a result.

If you were ever interested in certifying your home through our Century Plaque program, there's still time to do so before this conference.  While it typically takes a couple of weeks to verify the date of each home, as well as 4-6 weeks to fabricate each bronze plaque, If you were to order yours soon, there's still time to have your home certified before the conference.

Otherwise, they make excellent holiday gifts as well, for those inclined to think that far ahead.  For more details, visit the PCA Century Plaque Page on our website and fill out the online information contact form, or contact us directly to get started.

Accident on Parkside Ave.

This afternoon there was a head on collision of two cars at the corner of Parkside Avenue and Florence Avenue.  While we await word to see if anybody was seriously hurt, the PCA remains very concerned about the nature of this intersection.  It was not long ago that a driver lost control late at night and barreled over a lawn, crashing into 123 Parkside Avenue, shaking the house off it's foundations.  Since that time, we have been working with the Depar
