Buffalo Acadeny of Science Charter School

BASCS, BuffaloThe Buffalo Academy of Science Charter School (BASCS at 190 Franklin Street was built in the early 1950s as the Buffalo premises for the Young Womens Christian Association of Western New York.

For a time, prior to the construction of the modern streamline building for the YWCA of WNY, part fo the site was occupied by a house where Millard Fillmore, 13th President of the United States, had lived from 1831-1858.

The YWCA used the building until 2006 and their emblem of a bar across an inverted triangle is still visible on the facade.
