Oldest Commercial Greenhouse in Buffalo

A friend reminded me that the South Park Conservatory dates from 1901, so our humble little circa 1907 greenhouse is not the oldest greenhouse in the city, just the oldest commercial greenhouse. I am tempted to speculate that it is also the oldest commercial greenhouse in the county, since the suburban garden centers mostly opened after World War II. But there could be a similarly humble structure of the same vintage out there somewhere in rural Erie County. If you know of one, drop us a line.
