« back to classes page

The Columbus Park area of the Prospect Hill  neighborhood is rich in history and architecture with a spectacular view of Lake Erie and wonderful lake breezes.  The elegant homes that line the entrance to the Peace Bridge tell the story of some of Buffalo’s wealthiest citizens in an area defined by the Erie canal, Olmsted’s Front Park, and Fort Porter.  Hear about the healing spring waters that ran through the area causing it to became a travel destination for many and the beautiful hotels that catered to those travelers. Known as Doctor’s Row, this neighborhood became home to generations of Italian-American families including the founder of our Columbus Day holiday.    Come stroll the area and learn about its incredible history and the current challenges the neighborhood faces to preserve its heritage in face of the Peace Bridge expansion.
