2012 photos - George Cary House
460 Franklin Street, Buffalo, New York

See also photos taken in 2002.

At one time, the Italianate house pictured below was the residence of George Cary, a prominent Buffalo architect, and his wife Allithea Birge.

Although Cary did not design the house originally, he did add the wrought-iron front porch, leaded glass Gothic windows, and the second-story side porch. Cary also designed the wrought-iron Forest Lawn Cemetery - Main Entrance Gate.

In 1954, Cary's son, Charles, listed himself at the address.
