Seeing that this is an election year, Visit Buffalo Niagara has produced a fun video surrounding the ties that this city has with the White House. Starting at the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site and leading their way to the McKinley Monument, host Nelson Starr and TR himself follow the presidential trail as it pertains to Buffalo, NY. Visit the statue of Grover Cleveland as it stands in front of City Hall, before heading off to Forest Lawn to learn about Millard Fillmore. Along the way we are given a concise history lesson, highlighting the important role that Buffalo has had in the presidential realm.
I bet that you can guess where the presidential tour ended up. What would a tour of this nature be without a stop into one of Buffalo's most revered pubs, Founding Fathers? The watering hole is a major hotspot for all those who love to imbibe in drink and trivia. Owner Michael Driscoll has been known to stump the best of them with his knowledge of the history of Buffalo.
Tag along with Nelson Starr and TR for a whirlwind tour of a few Buffalo landmarks... you might learn a few things along the way!
