  • BMC Speaker Series: Black Rock Harbor & Black Rock Village


    Unfortunately, the 10AM Speaker is at capacity! Please consider attending our Open House happening the same day, Saturday, Feb. 8th from 11AM-2PM here at the Buffalo Maritime Center.

    Join us on Saturday, Feb. 8th at 10AM at the Buffalo Maritime Center as we welcome Dr. Mary Ann Kedron of the Black Rock Historical Society to celebrate Black Rock Community Day! Come learn about boatbuilding, business, and all forms of transport that happened along the Niagara River. See how our area remains an important border crossing and commercial hub from its very earliest days. Dr. Kedron will share photos, stories, maps and more. Learn more about this place called Black Rock.

    Then, after Dr. Kedron speaks from 11AM-2PM, stay for a Buffalo Maritime Center Open House! We’ll have folks on hand to talk about our current projects like the 1825 Packet Boat, “The Seneca Chief,” that will be built down at Canalside starting this summer as well as our Student Boatbuilding Hand-to-Hand Program.

    This event is family friendly and open to all ages. And thanks to our sponsor, the Paul & Helen Ellis Charitable Trust, we’ll have coffee during the Speaker Series, food and drinks throughout the Open House, and the admission is free.

    We hope to see you there!
