The Buffalo News and the Junior League of Buffalo are pleased to announce that the August Feine House has been chosen as the location of the 2017 Decorators' Show House. The architecturally historic home is located at 766 Ellicott Street, Buffalo, NY 14203.
The August Feine House is in the heart of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC). The 7,800 square foot home was built by John Iribacher in 1888 and was purchased by Feine in 1906. Originally from Germany, Feine was an artisan and leader in the field of hand forged wrought iron work in the early 20th Century. He specialized in ornamental iron latticework and examples of his talents are visible througout the interior and exterior of this historic structure.
When the restoration of the house is complete, it will become the newest component of the Kevin Guest House (KGH), a four-building campus hosting patients and families traveling to Buffalo for medical care. The additional of this house to the campus will double the number of guests KGH can host, provide handicap accessibility and will provide larger suites for families.
The JLB, in conjunction with our partner, The Buffalo News, has raised more than $3.9 million to benefit the Western New York community through revenue generated by the Decorators' Show Houses. Applications for the proceeds from the 19th Decorators' Show House are anticipated to be available at the end of 2017.
