Overview

Freemasonry in Old Buffalo: Leroy Nixon's History of Buffalo Consistory by James Leroy Nixon

Buffalo had a reputation for being the "last city in the East" in terms of social mores, and in its heyday supported clubs and societies that had much in common with those in New York and Philadelphia. Some of these still survive, such as the Consistory of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. Its headquarters are now in Buffalo's suburbs, but its former building was originally a mansion of the Rand family and converted by the Masons in 1925 for Masonic use. In turn it was sold to the Jesuit Order in 1944 and renamed Berchman's Hall. It is now Canisius High School. Genealogists will welcome this scarce volume, with its rolls of the Buffalo elite of a century and more ago.
