Overview
Alfred and Alfred Station reveals the heritage of a southwestern New York State community nestled in the hills of Allegany County. With more than 200 pictures, the story honors the early pioneers who in 1807 permanently settled on forested land once inhabited by the Seneca Nation. It focuses on not only education—always highly valued, as evidenced in the three institutions of higher learning here—but also on the people, businesses, farms, and civic organizations that have enriched the town for 200 years.
