DeGraff Mansion


On April 30, 1885, James H. DeGraff and his family moved into the elegant mansion at the corner of Payne and Goundry. It was the first residence in North Tonawanda to boast the luxury of running water--before the city waterworks was even completed. This was accomplished by a special reservoir tank on the third floor, to which well water was piped.
