Erie County

Erie County, is a county located in the U.S. state of New York. As of the 2000 census, the population was 950,265. The county seat is Buffalo. The county’s name comes from Lake Erie, which in turn comes from the Erie tribe of Indians who lived south and east of the lake before 1654.

Erie County is home to the Buffalo Bills football team, the Buffalo Sabres hockey team, the Buffalo Bandits lacrosse team, the Buffalo Bisons minor league baseball team, and the Buffalo Silverbacks, a basketball team in the American Basketball Association. The city also features a zoo, a botanical garden, a science museum, an historical museum, and the famous Albright-Knox Art Gallery. The Erie County Fair, now called America’s Fair, held every August in the Town of Hamburg, is the second largest fair in the country.
