Are these golfers just bad at the fourth hole or is there something otherworldly drawing their balls toward an unassuming grave marker?
Flint Hill is one of the pieces of Buffalo history that has been forgotten over time. It’s an unassuming bit of land in the city, nestled between what is now Scajaquada Creek and Jewett Parkway. It may not look like much now, but it is, in fact, a burial mound that we have built on top of over the centuries.
Due to poor planning and even worse leadership, American troops made camp for the long Western New York winter during the War of 1812, and nearly all of them perished. Eventually, the bodies were buried in a nearby meadow. They’re still there to this day, but a meadow no longer marks their final resting place, but rather, the Delaware Park Golf Course.
