Planned by Frederick Law Olmsted as an accompaniment to his Buffalo park & parkway system, the Parkside neighborhood features graceful tree-lined streets that curve around Delaware Park. Always one of the most popular neighborhoods in Buffalo, the homes of the Parkside neighborhood represent a range of architectural styles from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, including Arts & Crafts, Victorian, and American Foursquare.

Neighborhood landmarks include the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd where the tour begins, the Art Deco former Pierce Arrow showroom at Main Street and Jewett Parkway, and the Darwin Martin House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright (admission to the Darwin Martin House is not included in this tour). Join us on a walking tour of this picturesque Buffalo neighborhood to discover the beauty and history of its street, homes, and past residents.

The tour meets at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd at 96 Jewett Parkway, Buffalo, NY 14214, at the corner of Jewett Parkway and Summit Avenue. Street parking is available on Jewett Parkway, Summit Avenue, and other nearby streets.
