"The old Land Office is a common reminder of all the grandfathers and great grandfathers of Western New York. Their frequent pilgrimages to the Land office was a feature of their lives, They viewed again and again it's sturdy walls; they stepped in and out again overs it's threshold that they found in the center of all of their interests, the topic of much of their discourse. It was to them a social, religious and political headquarters, while they felled the trees and let the sunlight down through the woods to invite production in the fertile soil." --John Kennedy, 19th century scholar
