The Buffalo News - - LOCAL NEWS - – Mark Som­mer

Three build­ings in Western New York have been rec­om­mended for the State and Na­tional Reg­is­ters of His­toric Places.

The struc­tures are deemed to have contributed to New York’s diverse history.

Buf­falo Pub­lic School 51 is one of Buf­falo’s only re­main­ing in­tact 19th-cen­tury school build­ings. The first stage was con­cluded in 1895 and the sec­ond in 1928.

First Pres­by­te­rian Church, built in stages be­gin­ning in circa 1830, is the old­est re­li­gious building in Lewis­ton, and Lewis­ton Vil­lage Ceme­tery, go­ing back to 1802, doc­u­ments the vil­lage’s history.

The Seneca Plumb­ing and Heat­ing Com­pany building at 192 Seneca St. was home to a busi­ness founded in 1937 by Max Lin­sky, a Jewish Rus­sian im­mi­grant. It was as­so­ci­ated with the growth and success of Buf­falo’s Jewish im­mi­grants.
