Please note: This event has been postponed until further notice. Updated event dates and times will be available on the event calendar as soon as a new date is established.

Dr. Claire Schen hosts The ‘City is A-Wheel’: Buffalo’s Bicycling Women and Men of the 1890s, a discussion on cycling in Buffalo in the1890s. Buffalo has a history of manufacturing and riding that is linked to the city’s prominence in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Documents and images from the Museum and other collections show the daring women and men of early bicycling in the city. As the Buffalo suffragist, cyclist, and reporter Mrs. Ada Kendall said, the “city is a-wheel.”

Members free; museum admission.
