The area was part of the vast Buffalo Creek Reservation of the Iroquois Confederacy and home of Red Jacket, legendary leader and orator of the Seneca Nation. Remnants of the Hydraulic Canal are evident in the district`s distinct street pattern. Corporate magnate John D. Larkin established his mail order business here in 1875, and commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design the Larkin Administration Building. Frederick Law Olmsted planned a parkway connection through the district.
