Buffalo became home for people from all over, including the first Native Americans, Dutch immigrants, African Americans, and Yankees from New England. This exhibit at The Buffalo History Museum is all about sharing those people’s stories. 

It’s called Neighbors: The People of Erie County and it’s been around since 1995.
