Generations Of Learning

Lafayette High School, Buffalo New York

One of my favorite memories of 1968 is walking to my first day of high school. The closer I got to school, the more friends from elementary school started showing up on the side street of the building. This made me less anxious about the new year and being in the freshman class.

Upon arrival the first decision I had to make was which door to enter through. Certainly in these modern times the “girls door ” was still not a school rule.

The school was designed by Buffalo architects August Esenwein and James A. Johnson. It opened it doors in 1903. It is listed today on the National Register of Historic Places.

Thanks for stopping by 🙂
