Buffalo, New York was established as a village called New Amsterdam next to Buffalo Creek in 1798 by the Holland Land Company. In 1700, however, the villagers, who did not like the name, moved to call it Buffalo, after the nearby creek. It was not officially changed to the Village of Buffalo until eight years later, with the consent of all 25 residents of the village. It is the modern day seat of Erie County and is located on the eastern bank of Lake Erie.
