There is an effort underway to save a historically significant building on High Street, bordering the Medical Campus. For years this neglected structure has sat, waiting for its time to shine again. Unfortunately that time might never come, and neighbors, architect lovers, and history buffs are fighting to save the building. A petition has been started on Change.org that spells out the scenario:
“204 High Street-291 Maple Street, an Italianate brick structure circa 1870, is one of the oldest in Buffalo’s Fruit Belt neighborhood and its proposed destruction prompts neighborhood residents to respond with concern about the fate of this historic home and the unique architectural fabric of the community. We residents wish to retain the historic, unique architectural character of the neighborhood and strongly oppose its demolition and support efforts to rehabilitate and reuse. Please preserve our neighborhood, with its street level urban fabric, historic buildings, walkability, and architectural diversity, by saving 204 High Street.”
The building is currently owned by The City.
