About

Fifty five mayors have served the City of Buffalo since it was first incorporated in 1832 and more than half of them are interred here at Forest Lawn. Hear many of their fascinating stories on this 90 minute trolley tour.

Leading the tour will be former Mayor, George Clinton. Some of the notables that you will learn about are Samuel Wilkeson. On his memorial in Section K is inscribed in Latin “Urbem Condidit” meaning “City Founded” or as many people say “He founded the City.” We will also feature Frank Sedita, the first mayor elected to four terms, Soloman G. Haven law partner of Millard Fillmore and Fillmore’s Postmaster General and Elbridge Spaulding known as the “Father of the Greenback”, Charles Rausch the original “Charlie the Butcher” and William G. Fargo, founder of Wells Fargo.

Tickets: $25 for general admisison /$15 Forest Lawn Heritage Foundation members. You can also call for reservations at 716-332-2233.
