The name 'The Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society' is now a thing of the past. The landmark institution announced Thursday it will now simply be known as The Buffalo History Museum. 

The 150-year-old museum also has a new logo and work will begin soon on installing a new signature sign outside of the campus at Elmwood Avenue and Nottingham Court. 

Executive Director Melissa Brown says the decision to re-brand was made after research showed a lack of identity among many in the community.
