The commission says Williamsville should take pride in all the jewels the village has to offer.

“We have preserved many of them and we hope to preserve many more so we never forget our past as we build our future together in the village,” said Christine Hunt of the Historic Preservation Commission.

“What we have to do with our history, is we need to prioritize it we need to preserve and we need to preserve with regards to our history within the Village of Williamsville.
