Frances Folsom’s Birthday!

One of Buffalo’s most famous citizens, Stephen Grover Cleveland is still often overlooked or casually dismissed by the history books. With a meteoric rise from Sheriff of Erie County to President of the United States within just a few years, Cleveland made his mark not only on Buffalo but also on the nation.

Cleveland’s career was not without its fair share of scandal, both in Buffalo and in the White House. His White House wedding to Buffalo’s Frances Folsom was the talk of the town for more than one reason. Join us on this entertaining tour as we trace the life of Buffalo’s President, Grover Cleveland and his First Lady.

This tour meets at the statue of Grover Cleveland outside Buffalo City Hall, 65 Niagara Square, Buffalo, NY, 14202, at the northeast corner of the building facing Niagara Square. Street parking in downtown Buffalo is free after 5 PM.
