"The Warsaw Downtown Historic District is located in the Village of Warsaw, Wyoming County, New York. Wyoming County (population 42,155) is primarily a rural, agricultural area, approximately equidistant from the cities of Buffalo (50 miles west) and Rochester (55 miles northeast). The Village of Warsaw (population 3,473), the Wyoming County seat, is located in the northeast quadrant of the county.' The village sits within the Oatka Valley, nestled between steep north-south ridges to its east and west. The Warsaw Downtown Historic District encompasses the traditional, compact nineteenth-century commercial cluster along North Main Street between Buffalo Street and Frank Street, as well as a stylistically and chronologically varied grouping of commercial, social, and religious buildings on South Main Street. The district also includes related commercial buildings along East and West Buffalo Streets just east and west of the intersection with Main Street. District boundaries are drawn to exclude late twentieth-century auto-oriented development at the fringes of the commercial center and adjacent nineteenth-century residential neighborhoods."
