2nd Fridays on Forest
Wednesday, May 2, 2018 | Buffalo Rising
Now that the Richardson-Olmsted Campus is in full swing, there’s a relatively new event that has sprung up that tag teams the Campus with the Buffalo History Museum Resource Center (across the street). Visitors will have a chance to explore the Resource Center, and the Richardson Olmsted Campus, the second Friday of each month, May through October. For those who have not ever taken the time to visit the Resource Center, it is a wealth of historic archival information.
The joint tour is a great idea, because it brings together two powerhouse operations that offer similar historic appeal. The Resource Center part of the tour will focus of the Pan-American aspect of the facility. The tour will then head across the street to the former asylum, where guests will get to check out spaces that have not yet been developed and are not accessible otherwise.
After the tour, people are welcome to linger longer, by enjoying a drink at the Hotel Henry bar, or even a meal at 100 Acres: The Kitchens at Hotel Henry. The tours also coincide with the Burchfield Penney Art Center’s M&T Bank Second Friday extended hours.
