Cobblestone District placed on National Register of Historic Places

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A piece of Buffalo is leaving its mark on a national scale.

The Cobblestone District was placed on the “National Register of Historic Places.” Hundreds volunteered to clean up the area over the years and their hard work paid off.

On Tuesday, two plaques commemorating the Cobblestone District’s history were unveiled.

Tim Tielman of the Campaign for a Greater Buffalo said, “We volunteered, not knowing anyting about historic stone paving, but we lifted up and cleaned 60,000 of these stones. So this is the fruits of Buffalonians’ labor.”

The Cobblestone District includes Perry, Columbia and Illinois Streets. It’s located near the Erie Canal.
