Nichols Campus Tour
The Nichols School, established in Buffalo in 1892, was first created as an Ivy league only preparatory school for the Protestant upper class of Buffalo. First located on Norwood Avenue, the school moved to its current Amherst street campus in 1909. This 90-minute walking tour highlights the beautiful “English Scholastic” architecture of this campus, while also trying to capture the school’s unique culture and history, particularly its role in Buffalo history.
Highlights of the tour include: a detailed walk around the campus’s grounds, a thorough history of the school’s founding and progression from 1892 until today, and a look into three of the school’s academic buildings, two of which were designed by E.B. Green. This tour is given by a current Nichols School student.
Meet at Nichols School at 1250 Amherst Street, Buffalo, NY 14216. Meet in front of the bell tower on the school’s quad. Parking is available in the school’s parking lot, entered from Amherst Street.
