The Lower Lakes Marine Historical Society is undergoing a name change. The former moniker was a mysterious name that said nothing about what the organization is about, namely the history of the Port of Buffalo, its harbor, waterways and their role in the development of the economies of the Niagara Frontier.
Buffalo Harbor Museum is open to everyone. Our displays and exhibits contain archival photos and artifacts that illustrate the transformation of the Buffalo's waterfront from the early 1800s. Today, as the waterfront is rediscovered, come and visit the Buffalo Harbor Museum and explore its past.
Our new url: www.buffaloharbor.org is live and redirects to the Lower Lakes website, here. It will take some time to migrate everything to the new site, but until that time, this site will remain up and running.
Just in time for Christmas, our new book, "Fire and Water - Disasters on the Buffalo Harbor and the Surrounding Waterfront" is now in distribution. See the Ship's store for more information and ordering, or stop by the museum!
