Grover Cleveland has been the subject of many claims about places where he lived or liked to hang out. Are they true? Are there undiscovered Cleveland sites in Buffalo? Join Library Director,Cynthia Van Ness, MLS as she explores these claims.
Cleveland was elected mayor of Buffalo in 1882. During his years of office, one of his primary goals was to “purge government corruption”. That is one of the leading factors that led him to the NY Governor’s Office. Ultimately, he won the US presidency. One of his claims to fame was serving two non-consecutive terms in office (the only president in American history to do so). This is a wonderful chance to learn about Cleveland, in a way that will help people to gain a clear understanding of his time spent in Buffalo.
