You may not know:

Incorporated in 1836, the Town was large in area, but small in population. Unknown to many, the Town back then included the present day Town, but also the Village of Kenmore, the City of Tonawanda, Grand Island, and the islands in the nearby Niagara River. The population in these areas was approximately 1,200. The Erie Canal ran through the farmland and marshes along the Niagara River and much of the lumber industry located near the Canal joining Tonawanda and North Tonawanda. The original “Military Road” ran through the Town coming from Buffalo and going on to Youngstown. The two major old Indian trails became Delaware Road and Englewood Avenue. Our Town Historical Building on Knoche Road provided German-Christians a place to worship when it was St. Peter’s German Evangelical Church. Father John Neumann (now St. John Neumann) founded the St. John the Baptist R.C. Church in North Bush, as that part of the town was then called.
