In the forties an eastern architect, Upjohn, had been brought to Buffalo to build a prominent church. Now in the building boom of the late sixties that succeeded the Civil War, Buffalo architects built mansions in the impressive mansarded style, derived from the fashion of Second Empire Paris, and comparable to those being built in the East. Solid, pretentious, but dignified, such work contrasts with the more naïve exuberance of local builders.
