Terra Cotta Tour of Buffalo

Boston Valley Terra Cotta takes great pride in restoring the façades of the past and being an active part in the current local renaissance. The City of Buffalo is home to some of the most historically significant American architecture, clad in ornate terra cotta façades. Architects such as Louis Sullivan, Henry Hobson Richardson, and James A. Johnson were able to make their mark on Western New York by designing buildings that have lasted well into the 21st century thanks to modern preservation techniques.

The city of Buffalo has been making a comeback in the last decade with ex-pats and new residents moving into the downtown area and new construction wherever you look, the city finally feels alive again. Boston Valley has been a part of this renaissance, provided their manufacturing skills and products  for new projects in the area, such as the University at Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine, 250 Delaware Avenue, and Roswell Park.
