Frank Lloyd Wright Fontana Boathouse
Join Explore Buffalo for a tour of the only boathouse designed by Frank Lloyd Wright! Originally designed by Wright in 1905 for the University of Wisconsin, the Boathouse was never built until its construction in 2007 in Buffalo along the shore of the Black Rock Channel. This was one of Wright’s favorite designs, as evidenced by his inclusion of the Boathouse in his now famous Wasmuth Portfolio.

Lancaster students rally in support of nickname


LANCASTER, N.Y. - A decision by the Lancaster School District to change its mascot is not sitting well with some students who held a rally Thursday morning. The students felt they were left out of the decision-making process.

Once students got off the buses this morning, those who still support the mascot rallied outside the building. Senior Emily Koeppel organized the rally. She says there was never a formal discussion in school classes about changing the mascot name and why it was being considered.

About 200 students from the high school, and about 100 students from the middle school, participated in the rally.
