Highlights of Buffalo History, 1927
The Parkside Candy Shoppe and Factory is locally significant as a largely intact example of an early twentieth-century confectionary production and sales facility. The buildings are significant under criteria A in the area of commerce for their associations with Buffalo's commercial history for more than 80 years. The store and factory complex is a good representative example of the type of independent candy store and candy manufacturer that frequently existed in American cities. The buildings are also significant under C as intact representatives of commercial and manufacturing buildings, and the store is additionally notable for its outstanding Adam Revival interior design.
