>Two city buildings given historic landmark status

Buffalo's Common Council on Tuesday designated two buildings as local historic landmarks but withheld the designation from two others.

Lawmakers awarded landmark status to the William Heath House, a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home on Soldiers Circle, and former School 46, one of the city's oldest schools, at Virginia Street and Elmwood Avenue.

The Council withheld landmark designation from the Walter V. Davidson House, another Wright-designed home, at 57 Tillinghast Place, and the Pan-American House on Delaware Avenue, owned by former Common Council Member Alfred Coppola.
