Newspapers are often called the first drafts of history. Within the archives of The Buffalo News are 140 years of diverse voices, stories and photographs chronicling the lives of Western New Yorkers and documenting the historical moments that have left a mark on our community.
Examining front pages from years gone helps give context to our region’s history, viewing monumental events from the perspective of those who lived through them. For 140 years, we’ve captured and preserved the stories that shaped our city. Thank you for entrusting us with that responsibility.
