The Historic Buffalo River Tour's Last Trip of the Season: Labor Day, September 3

THE HISTORIC BUFFALO RIVER TOUR'S LAST TRIP OF THE SEASON

  •   Last chance this season to explore Buffalo's Grain Elevator District by Boat! Labor Day, Monday September  3. This unique boat tour has been educating sell out crowds for 27 years now, and this year was no different selling out every tour. We cover the history, architecture, and technology of the grain elevators, flour mills, and other industries along the Buffalo River and City Ship Canal,  along with a general history of the Erie Canal and inner harbor area. It also provides a great perspective of the greenspace and natural beauty of the Buffalo River, and potential re-use ideas for the elevators not operational at this time. Old and current photographs, maps and a video of the Grain Scoopers at work, will be on display to further enhance this educational experience. A great way to view all the new developements along the river. 
  •    For 27 years the Industrial Heritage Committee has hosted these boat tours, both public and private, attracting people from all over the world. Tickets are moving at a sell-out pace and will likely be gone by September 3rd. This tour was featured on CBS, their "Sunday Morning Diversion" program. This will definately be your last chance till next summer.  Don't Miss the Boat!

The industrial Heritage Committee, Inc would like to thank all those who attended our tours this summer and helped make this event such a great success. Would also like to thank Buffalo Harbor Cruises, who operate The Miss Buffalo, for another great run for their skillful captains and crew!  They have always been a wonderful host and very accomodating, "putting up with us" for those 27 years. Best wishes for success in the future.
