BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The grandson of President Grover Cleveland paid a visit to the Queen City.

He was in town for the launch of the Buffalo Presidential Center’s new partnership with the Buffalo and Erie County Library.

President Cleveland served as Erie County Sheriff, Mayor of Buffalo and New York’s Governor before he spent two terms in the White House.

His grandson, George Cleveland, says the new Presidential Center will be a great resource for learning about western New York’s rich political history.

“It’s huge,” Cleveland said. “Not only with the people who became president, but also the people who attempted to be president from here, or those who were vice-president. Jack Kemp, William Miller, Shirley Chisholm all were from Buffalo. I think it’s really great that students of Buffalo history are going to be able to access this information.”

President Cleveland was one of two Buffalonians to reach the White House. The other was Millard Fillmore.
