The Buffalo Presbyterian Church, located at 803 16th Street, was established in 1756. The founders and members were mostly Scotch-Irish coming from their homeland to Greensboro via Pennsylvania. According to the website of the church, the present sanctuary was erected in 1826-7 and when the walls were extended in 1956, great effort was made to match the old hand made bricks. This beautiful property includes a memorial garden, two educational buildings, an historical room, a renovated manse, and a cemetery on the property. Buffalo Church has many community outreach projects.
Long, multiple-building institutions (like churches and schools), in older neighborhoods, on well-landscaped lots, are almost impossible to do justice with one photograph. We could post a photo a Sunday of Buffalo Church and have enough photographs for the year. We settled on this view because it shows you how peaceful the property is once you get out of your car and walk around. Also, if you will notice the mature palm tree. Greensboro is located in the USDA Hardiness Zones 7a and 7b, which is a risky for palms outdoors; however, given the protection from the building, the palm trees on the church grounds seem to be thriving.
