Buffalo's historic Coit House up for sale


BUFFALO, NY - In today's real estate listings: a nearly 200-year-old home that was built by one of the founders of Buffalo. It's now up for sale, and looking for a responsible owner who can protect its legacy.

This is the Coit House, a three-story, frame home built circa 1816 by George Coit, said to be the oldest home still standing in the city. Coit settled in Buffalo in the years prior to the War of 1812.

Coit, along with several others, was instrumental in getting Buffalo's harbor started, back when the Buffalo River was still just Buffalo Creek, and he helped ensure that the Erie Canal would come all the way to what was then the Village of Buffalo, rather than terminating in the nearby Village of Black Rock. Coit was one of the eminences most responsible for Buffalo's early success.
