The Buffalo Presidential Center is an all-volunteer 501c3 non-profit organization chartered by the State of New York to explore and share stories about Buffalo and Western New York’s historic and contemporary contributions to the U.S. Presidency and national affairs. For over a decade the BPC has presented more than 12 public programs a year including speakers’ series, panel discussions, historical reenactments and exhibitions to audiences throughout Western New York.
We believe in the importance of exploring Buffalo's Presidential History.
The mission of The Buffalo Presidential Center is to encouragze the study, exploration, interpretation and public awareness of Buffalo and Western New York's contribution to the Presidency and national affairs. Our main focus is on Buffalo's two presidents, Millard Fillmore and Grover Cleveland, but our interest includes other Western New Yorkers who have shaped our nation as leading participants in national government, the judiciary, policymaking, and public affairs.
Through spotlighting this historical legacy, we hope to promote interest in contemporary issues related to the Presidency and national affairs.
Continuing to illuminate Buffalo’s connection to our presidential history and to share that heritage with the world.
