ElmwoodHistoricDistrict.org is your resource for learning about and benefiting from owning a historic building in the Elmwood Historic District in the heart of the City of Buffalo.
The Elmwood Historic District is a National Register historic district, not a local historic or a local preservation district. There are no restrictions on the use, treatment or transfer of National Register-listed private property. Buildings do not need be open to the public. There is no need to consult any new agency for exterior changes. Rehabilitation review is involved only with requests for tax credit and public funding programs, which request is voluntary.
To make a tax deductible donation to the neighborhood- led and neighborhood- funded Elmwood East National Register Historic District Initiative, please visit the Landmark Society of Western New York by clicking here. Thank you for your support!
Certified historic buildings are eligible for benefits, among them specialized funding and many owners can claim tax credits for many maintenance and improvement costs. Please contact the Elmwood East Community Council or Clinton Brown Company Architecture with any questions.
Historic districts create a sense and pride of place among neighbors, brand a neighborhood’s historic character and create economic opportunities for rehabilitation through tax credits and grants focused on historic buildings. Click here to donate to the Elmwood East National Register Historic District initiative through the Landmark Society of Western New York.
Elected leaders, The Elmwood East Community Council, and the Landmark Society of Western New York with support from Preservation Buffalo Niagara are working together to nominate the Elmwood East Historic District to the National Register of Historic Places.
This website is a public service to the neighborhood maintained by Clinton Brown Company Architecture. We are a full-service historic preservation architecture firm that is researching, writing and preparing the nomination and managing the project, through a grassroots process of community leadership, public meetings, community fundraising/grant writing and engaging experts.
