1850 - TREMENDOUS FIRE ! - OVER $100,000 OF PROPERTY DESTROYED !
From the Buffalo Daily Courier.

It becomes out painful duty to record the most disastrous conflagration, which has ever visited our city. The American Hotel, the Park Church, and numerous stores and dwellings contiguous to both are now in ruins. The blow has been a heavy one, and will awaken our citizens to the necessity of some measures being taken for their better protection from fire. Had there been a supply of water, sufficient to keep the engines in constant play, without the necessity of ceasing in order to change, from one resevoir [sic] to another, the fire might have been extinguished in the building where it took.

The fire broke out, at about half-past two, on yesterday morning, in the building next above the AMERICAN HOTEL, occupied by L. B. SHEARS, as a restaurant, and for six hours its course of destruction was unstayed. A heavy gale was blowing from the south-west, and fears were entertained, not alone by the faint-hearted of our citizens, that the devastation... Read MORE...

1887 - A PECULIAR CASE. Boys and Girls Married by a Buffalo Clergyman.
BUFFALO, N.Y., March 16. A most peculiar case came up in the Police Court here to-day, when a little girl between thirteen and fourteen years of age Applied to Judge King for a warrant for her husband. After some explanation it was given, for non-support. She said his name was Herbert F. Stone, and that he had married her in January last. Her name was Grace Kendall, and she is a ward of C. E. Kendall of the Kendall Manufacturing Company. When the huband was brought into court a most peculiar state of affairs came to light. It was learned that the couple mentioned, together with Charlie Kaigs, aged 17, and Mary Vaughn, aged 15, met at a dancing party in January last. It seems that they had all been slightly acquainted previously, but there was no intention of a marriage. After they had danced a few times they agreed to go to the residence of Rev. Charles H. Smith, 225 East Eagle street, and be married. They at once repaired there and the ceremony was performed. The families havegot... Read MORE...

Forty Buildings, Including Two Hotels Burned - A Fireman Killed by Falling Walls - Seventeen Other Persons Hurt.

BUFFALO, N. Y., Feb. 4 - The great fire Saturday morning did the most disastrous work in Buffalo since the embryo city was swept in flames in the war with the British and Indians in 1813 and only one house was left standing. A blaze in the heart of the manufacturing portion of the city was fanned by a high wind loaded with snow and destroyed more property than fire ever destroyed before in Buffalo. Flames were discovered about 2:45 o'clock in the upper portion of the new big five-story building of Root & Keating, the leather merchants, at the southwest corner of Wells and Carroll streets. Within an hour the great block was a mass of flaming ruins, and despite the efforts of the fire department other buildings in the vicinity caught from the flying fagots of fire. The Arlington Hotel and the Broezel House were soon in flames, but fortunately there was no loss of life, for ... Read MORE...

NAMES OF THE VICTIMS.

Buffalo, May 22. - Yesterday morning the Seneca Street side of the Brown building formerly occupied by the Western Union Telegraph company collapsed and a score or more people were buried in the ruins. The building was filled with offices, almost all of which were occupied. The Western Union left the building a few weeks ago and the owners of the block began the work of remodeling and strengthening it. On the Seneca Street side workmen were engaged in putting in black new iron columns and beams when the walls of a section of the building fell in.

Iron columns were twisted like wires, heavy wooden beams were torn to pieces like paper, pillars of brick crumbled to pieces and a huge cloud of dust arose, shutting out the wrecked buildings for some moments.

The immediate cause of the collapse of the building is supposed to have ... Read MORE...

On July 17, 1902, Willis Haviland Carrier designed the first modern air-conditioning system. (Buffalo, NY)
Willis Haviland Carrier was an American engineer and inventor who is widely regarded as the "Father of Air Conditioning." He was born on November 26, 1876, in Angola, New York, and passed away on October 7, 1950, in New York City.

Carrier's most significant contribution to the world was the invention of modern air conditioning, which revolutionized how we live and work. His invention addressed the problem of humidity affecting the quality of industrial processes, particularly in the printing industry. In 1902, while working for the Buffalo Forge Company, Carrier designed the first system that controlled temperature, humidity, and air circulation within a printing plant. This invention marked the birth of the first air conditioning system.

In 1915, Willis Carrier and several other engineers formed the Carrier Engineering Corporation (now known as Carrier Corporation), which focused on developing and improving air conditioning systems. This company became a pioneer in air... Read MORE...
