Celebrate Holiday Traditions at the Beautifully Decorated and Historic Eldon House

Celebrate Holiday Traditions at the Beautifully Decorated and Historic Eldon House

The Buffalo area is truly blessed to have such a large number of architecturally significant buildings. The same can be said for nearby London, Ontario, where buildings such as the historic Eldon House have become major tourism attractions.

Eldon House, which recently celebrated its 175th anniversary, remains virtually unchanged since the last century. Known as Ontario’s oldest residence, it contains family heirlooms, furnishings and priceless treasures and also boasts a beautiful 19th century-style garden. Built in 1834 for John and Amelia Harris, this historic home remained in the family until 1960 when it was donated to the City of London. The house and its gardens remain a place of beauty and tranquility.

Arcangel Gallery To Be Dedicated at The Botanical Gardens

BUFFALO, NY – The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens will officially open their new gallery space with a dedication ceremony on Friday, December 10 at 10am.  The Gallery will be named The Arcangel Gallery after local man, Brent D. Arcangel.

Brent D. Arcangel grew up in Western New York and was passionate about the diversity and quality of life he knew here.  He believed in “giving life your very best every day” and was a beacon of light to those who knew him.  After completing his undergraduate and graduate studies at University at Buffalo, his life ended tragically in a car accident caused by a driver who fell asleep at the wheel.  The Arcangel Gallery is donated by Brent’s parents, Wayne D. and Corrine Arcangel of Hamburg, NY, as a tribute to him, and to remind us all to celebrate life. The tranquil setting of the gallery provides visitors a peaceful calmness in the beauty that surrounds it.
