Built Circa 1815

Built shortly after the burning of Buffalo in December 1813, the George Coit House is the oldest extant home in Buffalo. Originally sited downtown at 53 Pearl St. on the southeast corner of Swan Street., the house was enlarged and moved to the more residential Allentown section about 1867. By the late 1960s it fell into disrepair and was slated for demolition. Appleton (Tony) Fryer purchased and saved the house, beginning Buffalo's organized historic preservation movement. The restored house served as a family home for three decades but once again fell into disrepair. The Allentown Association purchased the home in 1999, restored its structural integrity, and then sold it to continue service as a private residence.
