Municipal building approved for National Register

Tonawanda News — The Kenmore Municipal Building has been approved for the National Register for Historic Places, village officials announced Monday.

The designation was made official June 12, a statement from Kenmore Village Clerk Kathleen Johnson said. 

The building, located at the corner of Delaware Avenue and Delaware Road in Kenmore, was built in 1936 and construction took 11 months to complete. 

The structure was designed by Edward B. Green, who is responsible for about 200 buildings in Buffalo that still stand today. The building is considered to be in the classical monumental style with a touch of art deco in some of the aluminum window ornamentation. 

The cost of the building was $250,000, but 45 percent of the cost was covered by the Roosevelt-era Public Works Administration.

The building continues to government offices for the Town of Tonawanda and the Village of Kenmore, as well as the Kenmore Justice Court.
