AOL Travel Editor’s Review

It doesn't look like much from the outside—a humble, Queen Anne row house built in the late-1800s. But the things that happened on the inside—well, that's why this small abode was put on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.  It was here that Rev. J. Edward Nash Sr., a prominent African American preacher in Buffalo until his death in 1957, greeted black luminaries like Booker T. Washington and Adam Clayton Powell Sr., a powerful preacher from Harlem. Inside the tiny house, which is now a museum, everything is almost exactly as Nash's widow left it when she died in 1987. His letters and writings are perfectly preserved, and provide a unique look at the challenges confronted by African Americans living in post-Depression era Buffalo.
