About

A few words about Olmsted In Buffalo: Olmsted in Buffalo has been on the World Wide Web since August of 1996. It first was based on the old GeoCities.com hosting service, and later was moved to its own web domain. It is the oldest website focused on the Buffalo Parks and Parkways system, its relationship with Frederick Law Olmsted and his firm, and its historic development.

In 2012, the site was migrated to the WordPress authoring platform at the current http://www.olmstedinbuffalo.com address, maintaining in an updated format the original goal of a simple and uncluttered appearance of the original. A mobile version was put in place. More parks images have been added, and they provide a considerable expansion over what the older version of the site format was able to display.

We had a bit of an interruption from mid-2016 through 2017, when a combination of web host issues, new employment for the author, and a change of residence of the author unhappily coincided. With a new hosting provider in place, and the other dust settled, the site is again fully operational and revamped for best display on any chosen device. A complete refresh of the site’s imagery is underway. In addition, we are actively updating and further expanding the narrative content.

Olmsted in Buffalo is the personal endeavor of the author and it is provided for the benefit of the community. It is not affiliated with, nor sponsored by, any individual, organization, business, or governmental entity, nor is the author compensated or reimbursed for his work.
