Access Addition Planned for Colored Musicians Club

The Colored Musicians Club at 145 Broadway may be getting a small addition to improve access to the historic site. Stieglitz Snyder Architects have designed a 500 sq.ft. addition to the south side of the building to accommodate an elevator and new stairway. The Buffalo Preservation Board will review the $403,000 project at its April 6 meeting.

The Colored Musicians Club is the only remaining African American club of its kind in the United States. It was organized in 1918 and chartered in 1935. It has occupied the three-story Broadway building built in 1910 for Charles Zifle since 1944.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
