Bob and I visited Allegany State Park near Salamanca, New York, this past Sunday. We visit the park frequently, as it is within an hour’s drive from our house. My blog posts this week will showcase photographs from all of our visits to Allegany State Park. The subject of today’s blog post is the state park’s Administration Building.
The Tudor-Style Administration Building, which is located in the Red House area, sits atop a hill overlooking Red House Lake. According to the writer of Mon@rch Nature Blog, the construction of the administration building began on October 24, 1927 and wasn’t completed until late 1928.

The Administration Building houses the Red House Rental Offices, the New York State Park Police Station, the park museum, the Red House Gift Shop, the Red House Restaurant and the Allegany Regional Offices for the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
What follows are photographs of the Red House Area Administration Building that I have taken.
We have enjoyed several lunches at this restaurant. We’ve ordered a variety of sandwiches from the menu. We have never been disappointed with our selections, and the service has always been excellent.
