History is an intrinsic property of our business. We find it pays to know your service area well when you’re dealing with collectibles that can be a product of that history. In our service area is the village of East Aurora, NY. East Aurora was founded in 1804 and incorporated in 1874, just southeast of Buffalo. The village has a storied history for such a small town, true of much of the greater Buffalo area.
President Millard Fillmore, who succeeded Zachary Taylor, lived for a time in East Aurora. The house he built there while practicing law in the beginning of his political career is currently maintained by the Aurora Historical Society and is an attraction in the area. The structure dates from 1825 and has been restored to that era.
The Roycroft movement started in East Aurora, a 20th century craft collective that shaped a large portion of early 20th century architecture and design. The Roycroft movement’s founder was Elbert Hubbard. Hubbard and his wife died aboard the Lusitania in 1915, but the Roycroft movement continued to draw people to East Aurora for many years. Hubbard’s original print shop was converted to the Roycroft Inn to support the growing amount of traffic coming to East Aurora to visit and participate in the movement.
