An historic building at Main and Allen Streets in Buffalo was months, if not weeks, away from collapsing. But as we hear in this week's Press Pass, it's now on a path to being saved.
The building at 918 and 920 Main Street was constructed in 1891 to house a company known as the Bosche Carriage Repository. Buffalo Spree Editor Elizabeth Licata wrote about the landmark in her monthly Preservation Ready column in the September issue. She says it was designed by architect Cyrus Porter who is known for several famous buildings locally, including the Cyclorama.
