Explore Buffalo invites you to visit Knox Farm State Park, 437 Buffalo Road, East Aurora, from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, July 13, to learn the history of the Knox family’s farm and summer home!

If a picnic is not in your plans, the Village of East Aurora provides ample restaurants for dinner before or after the tour.
