Our Current Project: Riverside Review Binding

Support Riverside Review Preservation!

Join us in preserving the vibrant history of Black Rock, Grant Amherst, Riverside, and West Hertel in Buffalo, New York. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, the Black Rock Historical Society relies on your generosity to uphold its mission of educating the public about our rich local history.

Why Your Support Matters: The Riverside Review, a vital community newspaper since 1923, ceased operations in 2021. We’ve received a donation of 363 loose back-issues covering 2014-2021, which are currently stored in plastic bins. Your donation will help us professionally bind these issues into seven hard-cover volumes, ensuring their preservation and accessibility for researchers, museum staff, and visitors.

How Your Contribution Helps:

  • Preservation: Professionally bind loose issues to prevent damage and degradation.
  • Accessibility: Enhance availability for museum staff, researchers, and visitors.
  • Community Engagement: Empower residents to explore family histories, social events, businesses, schools, and more.
