    September 7, 2016 by CINDY NUNN. "....The Buffalo Community Centre has a long history in the small Northumberland community of Blyth, with its original roots going back to the 17th century, when it was first a tavern called the Red Bull, located on Keelman’s Row, part of which is now Regent Street, the current building’s address....By 1891 John Crawford owned the Buffalo. ...He owned it until about 1896. He allowed The Associated Shipwrights’ Society to meet on the premises every other Monday.....Around 1898 Thomas Gray purchased the property and he put in an application to replace the building with a grander structure, to be called the Buffalo Hotel.....By the end of 1899 the new Buffalo Hotel was built, and is the structure that you see standing there today...."
