Grover Cleveland’s Grandson to Support Presidential Library for Buffalo

Buffalo, New York. March 2, 2007. George Cleveland, grandson of Grover Cleveland, will be Free New York’s guest at a fundraiser on March 14th to raise funds for a Grover Cleveland Presidential Library in Buffalo, New York.

The cocktail party will be at Sonoma Grille, 5010 Main St. in Snyder from 6-9pm. For ticket information, go to FreeNewYork.org or call 566-7720.

George Cleveland, who works for a non-profit agency in North Conway, New Hampshire, has impersonated his grandfather on occasion including on C-Span.

Free New York has started a building fund at Citizens Bank to raise funds to purchase the vacant Fairfield Library in North Buffalo and transform it into a historical museum and library. The building opened the year Cleveland left office, 1897. Now city-owned, vacant and deteriorating, the building was designed by E.B. Green partner, Williams Sydney Wicks.

James Ostrowski, president of Free New York, said, “Our concept is to rescue this landmark from further decline, restore it to its original condition and cross-market the museum with the Darwin Martin House a mere half-mile away. With three presidential sites and a growing cluster of Frank Lloyd Wright attractions, Buffalo can truly be a center for cultural tourism in the Northeast.”

He noted that Free New York has offered to buy or rent the building and is awaiting a response from the City.

Free New York, Inc., known locally as Free Buffalo, is a non-profit, non-partisan New York State public policy research corporation and the research and policy arm of the Upstate tax revolt.
