About the Lighthouse and Fire boat
Edward M. Cotter is a fireboat in use by the Buffalo Fire Department at Buffalo, New York. Originally named William S. Grattan, she was built in 1900 by the Crescent Shipyard of Elizabeth Port, New Jersey. Due to age she was rebuilt in 1953 and renamed Firefighter upon her return to service. The following year she was renamed Edward M. Cotter. Her namesake, Edward Cotter, was a Buffalo firefighter.
*Edward M. Cotter is considered to be the oldest active fireboat in the world and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1996.
The Buffalo Lighthouse, also know as the "Chinaman's Light"because of it's Chinese-hat shape at the top. It is the oldest building in Buffalo that’s still standing on its original foundation, and the 61-foot-tall structure is one of the oldest along the shores of Lake Erie. It was completed in 1833.
