The Library is responsible for all two-dimensional items in the Museum's collection: books, pamphlets, letters, diaries, personal papers, organizational & business records, periodicals, newspapers, scrapbooks, photographs, postcards, prints, drawings, posters, maps, atlases, microfilms, and even some DVDs.

We have major collections on the Holland Land Company, Millard Fillmore, Seneca Indians, the Pan-American Exposition, the Larkin Company, and much more.  A new collecting initiative is our Newlywed Project.  

If your roots are in Western New York, our genealogical resources may help you find them. We are the leading destination for Buffalo house history researchers.  We welcome you to discover us.
