 About The Swannie House corner of Ohio and Michigan streets in Buffalo NY

The tavern, at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Ohio Street, has a vivid past. Records show James Swannie, sailor and saloonkeeper, operated next door since at least 1882. Noted author and Buffalo native Robert Dooley mentioned the tavern several times in his fictional accounts of life in the First Ward.
In 1983, Timothy and Marlene Wiles purchased the historic tavern. The building was in great need of restoration. The floors of the tavern were replaced with those from the old Plaza Suite Restaurant, a 1970s landmark atop the M & T Bank building.
During exterior rehabilitation, a new coating of paint threatened to obliterate a large painted sign from the waterfront's heyday advertising Kentucky whiskey. The firefighters aboard the fireboat Cotter, docked in a slip across Michigan Avenue, managed to convince the owners to restore the sign instead
