Speaker Nite

General Admission: $ 5.00


As part of its ongoing Speaker Nite series, we’ll welcome architectural historian and author Frank Kowsky at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, October 24th. Kowsky will be reflecting on the many achievements and local legacy of “Buffalo’s First Preservationist: Olaf ‘Bill’ Shelgren, Jr.”

“Along with his father, Bill Shelgren was a pioneer in Buffalo’s historic preservation movement,” says Stanton Hudson, Executive Director of the TR Site. “He was, in fact, instrumental in saving and restoring the TR Site itself. We look forward to hearing more about this unsung local hero who helped to preserve many of the architectural treasures that Buffalo is known for today.”

The lecture complements a special exhibit called “From Father, to Son, to City: The Preservation Legacy of Olaf & Bill Shelgren, Western New York 1909-2010” that is now open at the TR Site and will be available through November 10th.

Speaker Nite is part of the TR Site’s regular Tuesday evening programming, which is open to the public and made possible through the generous support of M&T Bank and the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA). Admission is $5 per person. Members of the TR Site enjoy free admission to Speaker Nite.
