Overview


Hamburg: 1910-1970 highlights the great growth and prosperity of Hamburg as the population expanded, roads and highways improved, and numerous businesses opened throughout the western New York State town. Among the fascinating people who made Hamburg life interesting were Amanda Michael and Lillian Eddy of the Nineteenth Century Club, which helped found the Hamburg Free Library; Broadway playwright George F. Abbott, who brought glamor to Hamburg; and Fred Weiss, the first chief of police of Hamburg Village, who had original ideas about criminal justice. In 1962, Hamburg marked its sesquicentennial with a celebration that is said to have surpassed everyone's wildest expectations.
