Hamlin Park Nation Register Work Rescheduled

Preservation Studios, in a pro bono role, is currently working on behalf of the Hamlin Park Taxpayers Association to gain listing in the National Register of Historic Places for the Hamlin Park neighborhood.  If successful, residents and businesses in the approved historic district could be eligible for historic preservation benefits, such as restoration tax incentives and, in certain instances, grants.

Like the campaign that led to the local historic district nearly two decades ago, pursuit of National Register listing for the only local historic district on Buffalo’s Eastside will be a community-based, volunteer-driven effort. If you are interested in volunteering to assist with the nomination effort, mandatory training sessions and fieldwork days for this coming spring are now scheduled:

All training sessions will take place at Preservation Studios’ Office the Thursday before that Saturday’s fieldwork event. The training session will run an hour in length and will demonstrate the proper way to fill out the survey form among other related topics.

All fieldwork days will begin at EM Tea Coffee Cup Café, located in the Hamlin Park neighborhood. From EM Tea, groups of volunteers will canvass specific areas of the Hamlin Park neighborhood collecting information and photographs. The survey will be performed from the sidewalk and is limited to an exterior visual analysis of each property. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Preservation Studios at 716-725-6410 or online at www.preservationstudios.com.
