Long Beach has Stunning Architecture All over the City.
The Bembridge Home is One of those Historic Delights.
Born and raised in outside of Buffalo, NY, I had the chance beautiful victorian homes every day. In my home town, Main Street was lined with big, old, impeccably kept Victorians with gabled tops, patterned shingles and stained glass windows.
Right in the heart of the city of Buffalo, on Delaware Avenue near Casanovia park, these homes abound.
As I stopped to have a look, it brought back memories of home and days gone by.
I know little about the Bembridge home located at 953 Park Circle Drive. It was built in 1906 by Josephine and Stephen Green. In 1918, the parents of Dorothy Bembridge bought the home. Dorothy would live in the home for the next 80 years — hence the Bembridge House.
It is currently owned by the Long Beach Heritage Organization, a great local nonprofit group dedicated to the knowledge and preservation of historical architecture in Long Beach. http://www.lbheritage.org/.
If you ever get the opportunity take a drive down 10th, past Magnolia. You’ll run right into it…on the right hand side.
