House built - 1869

At one time, the Italianate house pictured below was the residence of George Cary, a prominent Buffalo architect. Although Cary did not design the house originally, he did add the wrought-iron front porch, leaded glass Gothic windows, and the second-story side porch. Cary also designed the wrought-iron Forest Lawn Cemetery - Main Entrance Gate.

In 1954, Cary's son, Charles, listed himself at the address.
