The century old historic Occidental Hotel. The story goes that the present owner pulled down all the modernization attempts and discovered the unique walls coverings and ceilings intact. Then, the victorian style furniture was found in the basement where it had been stored for decades. A virtual time machine of goodies! Since this last restoration, the hotel has been a popular tourist stop in Buffalo, claiming that Butch Cassidy, Calamity Jane and Teddy Roosevelt were all guest in the early days.
