Our service area includes the Lumber City, North Tonawanda, NY. North Tonawanda is a city rich in history, part of the greater Buffalo area. Founded along Tonawanda Creek, which later became the Erie Canal, the town was first settled as early as 1809. With over 200 years of settled history, North Tonawanda is undoubtedly home to many undiscovered rare coins and other artifacts.
North Tonawanda’s 19th and 20th century industrial success created many large estates, mansions, and historic families. The historic rise of North Tonawanda started with the Lumber Barons in the 19th century, whose estates still line Goundry Street. The town is also the birthplace of the The Allan Herschell Company, a historic manufacturer of early 20th century carousels and roller coasters. Also founded in North Tonawanda was the North Tonawanda Barrel Organ Factory, later bought by Wurlitzer, one of the largest manufacturers of musical equipment in the world.
