Named after the centuries old German town, Hamburg was originally settled by Erie Indians; it’s a place where American tradition runs deep. New Englanders first started the American growth and production of the land, followed by Germans who revolutionized the land for agriculture in the 1830s. The history contributed to the town it is today, but it’s the people there now that make it what it is, and what it will be.
The Kleis Site
One of a very small number of Native American villages on the Niagara Frontier, it’s now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It’s an archeological site that defines US history, as the 17th-century Iroquoian village and burial grounds hold some of the most treasured artifacts and memoirs of the city of old. Many travel just to catch a glimpse of what rests here, and Hamburg is proud enough to call it part of their heritage. Celebrate history with your local Hamburg Wine and Liquor Store.
Erie Community College
The fourth largest in New York state, the college enrolls more than 13, 000 students. While Hamburg houses the south campus, the institution as a whole supports over 90 associate degree and certificate programs and 14 varsity sports teams. Among these is the football team that has the constant, uncanny ability to bring the community together. Not far from
Ralph Wilson Stadium, the natural grass field hosts 1800 to witness the Saturday tradition. And let’s be serious; you can’t take in a football game without a little American Whiskey from the local Hamburg Liquor Store.
Just 20 minutes south of Buffalo – and your Hamburg Spirits store – the fairgrounds play host to a variety of top-billed vents and attractions in the area. There are plenty of year-round events including livestock shows and “Face of a Farmer” profiles to showcase those who keep you well fed. For those who feel they have a little extra money in their pockets, the gaming center offers nearly 940 slot machines for your gambling pleasure. The raceway is no slouch either, offering live harness competitions from January to July. If you happen to be around in early August, there’s the unmatched Erie County Fair where you’ll definitely need some Bourbon. It’s the second largest of its kind in the United States. No big deal.
18 Mile Creek
Hamburg holds the entrance to one of the vastest and exciting natural epicenters in the area. The tree-covered hiking trails are essentially untouched by man, and are as beautiful as the views of its 60’ deep gorge. Not to be outdone, the fishing there is absolutely outstanding. The creek isn’t easy to find; but once you do, you’ll be glad you did. No bait and tackle needed – just sit back and take it all in. It’s a great place to picnic, so be sure to pick up a good old-fashioned NY wine from your Hamburg Liquor and Wine store and relax.
The Great Lakes Seaway Trail
Yes, it travels across a couple states, but most importantly, it travels through Hamburg. Established in 1978, it started as a byway extending from the Thousand Islands Bridge to the Seaway International Bridge. Since then, both the NY State Department of Transportation and the National Parks Service have recognized its importance. It features a visitor center and overlook on the Lake Erie shoreline, so Hamburg has no problem calling it our own. Grab some Italian Wines from your favorite Wine Store and enjoy the view.
