Traces of Buffalo’s rich history can be found dotted throughout the downtown core and broader region. Embedded within an elegant radial street and grid plan by Joseph Ellicott are buildings designed by some of the most influential architects of their time. Formative buildings by Louis Sullivan (Guaranty Building), Frank Lloyd Wright (Darwin Martin House), Eliel and Eero Saarinen (Kleinhans Music Hall) and H.H. Richardson (Buffalo Psychiatric Hospital) are a testament to the city’s considerable social and cultural importance.
