 The Town of Tonawanda - History
While most of the township had developed a mature agricultural economy by the close of the Civil War, the Village of Tonawanda began to awaken to opportunities in the lumber trade.
Thus, on March 23, 1903, Tonawanda was incorporated as a city and was separated from the Town of Tonawanda, leaving the township with its present boundaries.
L.P.A. Eberhardt recognized that many of Buffalo's restless citizens could be attracted to new housing developments in the Town of Tonawanda if lots were made available, streets developed, and transportation to their city jobs was reasonably convenient.
