Honoring Buffalo’s presidential sons

Buffalo News: If Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan and many other U.S. presidents can have presidential libraries, why not Buffalo’s Grover Cleveland and Millard Fillmore?
And what better site than the H.H. Richardson complex?

That’s what North Council Member Joseph Golombek Jr. proposes. He envisions a museum that would pay tribute to two of the region’s most famous former residents.

“People travel to visit one presidential library. We could have two located in the same complex,” he said.

The landmark Richardson site is on the grounds of the Buffalo Psychiatric Center near Forest and Elmwood avenues. The state has committed $100 million to restore the building for educational and cultural uses.
