The 2013 Open-Air Autobus tours are the product of over 25 years’ worth of architectural and historical research conducted by members of The Campaign for Greater Buffalo History, Architecture & Culture in the course of preservation activities. Much of that has been done by scholars and professionals in the field. It uses this information to further its educational mission and help to defray the costs of its wide-ranging preservation efforts. The Campaign is Buffalo’s most dynamic preservation organization, and tours are led by those on the frontlines Buffalo’s preservation battles. Expect expert color commentary!

The Campaign develops new tours and tweaks existing ones every year. New this year, for example, is “American Dreams: The Houses of E.B. Green.” The Whirlwind is a fast-paced look at the masterworks and forces that shaped the city.

Fridays are a rotating series of tours that take an in-depth look at neighborhoods and architectural themes. Proceeds help further the goals of The Campaign, a charitable organization chartered by the New York State Department of Education.
