This brick and stone mansion was built circa 1876 for
Robert Borthwick Adam (1833-1904), founder of Buffalo's
famed retailer Adam, Meldrum & Anderson. One of
many distinguished homes erected in the late 19th and
early 20th centuries on Buffalo's finest thoroughfare, it
showcased Adam's wealth and prominence in society. After
Adam's death, the mansion was used as a funeral home
and later adapted for office space. The Adam House is
listed in the National Register of Historic Places as part
of the Allentown Historic Preservation District
