1828 Buffalo City Directory The 1828 Buffalo city directory, published by Leonard P. Crary, was the first directory published in what was then the village of Buffalo, New York. There are few surviving copies. The next Buffalo directory came out in 1832, published by Leonard’s widow, Sarah Crary. Buffalo city directories have been published, with a few exceptions, on an annual basis ever since. In 1876, the Courier Company published a directory for Buffalo and included a reprint of the 1828 directory in the back. The original edition had a fold-out map that was omitted in the 1876 reprint. We are grateful to the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library for microfilming the 1876 directory, digitizing that microfilm, and granting us permission to download the 1828 page scans and recreate that first directory for you. The full 1876 directory is online here.
