Western New York's Connection to the Presidency

Our Mission

The mission of The Association for a Buffalo Presidential Center is to encourage the study, exploration, interpretation and public awareness of Buffalo and Western New York's contribution to the Presidency and national affairs. Our main focus is on Buffalo's two presidents, Millard Fillmore and Grover Cleveland, but our interest includes other Western New Yorkers who have shaped our nation as leading participants in national government, the judiciary, policymaking, and public affairs.

Through spotlighting this historical legacy, we hope to promote interest in contemporary issues related to the Presidency and national affairs.
