Buffalo Bungalows Tour

Sat, Aug 20
11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Admission starts at: $7
Colvin & Tillinghast • 1 Tillinghast Place, Buffalo New York 14216


In the first decade of the twentieth century, the bungalow or Craftsman style – characterized by sheltered porches, sturdy wood moldings, earth tone colors, and interiors centered around a cozy hearth – embodied the romanticized ideal of the American home.  On this tour we will explore picturesque Tillinghast Place, a tree-lined street with a wonderful collection of bungalows, Craftsman houses, and the last home built by Frank Lloyd Wright in Buffalo.  A history of the rise of the bungalow and a brief history of this special north Buffalo neighborhood will be discussed.

This tour meets at the southeast corner of the intersection of Colvin Avenue & Tilinghast Place, Buffalo, NY 14216. Street parking is available on Tillinghast Place and other nearby streets – note that Tillinghast Place is a one-way street that must be entered from Parkside Avenue. This tour is approximately ninety minutes in length and 0.7 miles of walking.
