TWO CITY BUILDINGS CITED FOR DISTINCTION

The Saturn Club and the Buffalo Electric Vehicle Company building have been nominated for the state and national Registers of Historic Places.

The Saturn Club, 977 Delaware Ave., is an example of early 20th-century Tudor Revival architecture by the local firm of Fley & Lyman. The 120-year-old private social club has used the building since 1922.

The former Buffalo Electric Vehicle Company building at 1219 Main St. is an intact example of an early automobile factory. The steel and reinforced concrete building opened in 1911 and was most recently home to Breitweiser Printing Co. Artspace purchased the building last year to convert it to artist lofts.

The two properties were among 30 chosen by the state Board for Historic Preservation, a panel appointed by the governor. The nominees were announced by the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
