Millard Fillmore House, East Aurora, NY Photos

Millard Fillmore, with family roots in East Aurora, built his house (c1826) (now a museum) in that town. He later moved to Buffalo to practice law & played an active role in civic matters for the rest of his life (1800-1874). As a compromise Whig candidate for Vice-President, he found himself untrusted by Zachary Taylor's cabinet. Upon Taylor's death in 1850, Fillmore accepted compromises which postponed the inevitable Civil War for a decade.
