BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB – The face of the Buffalo History Museum Resource Center is no more.

Demolition crews removed the distinctive replica of the Dreamland entrance from the Pan American Exposition from the façade of the History Museum’s Forest Avenue building on Monday.

The face was never meant to be permanent and had been deteriorating. The face was made of Styrofoam and installed in 2001 as part of the Pan American Centennial celebrations.

The original Dreamland woman was the entrance to an amusement at the exposition which was a maze of mirrors.
